SSD #98 Card

I'm back from my self-imposed exile from challenges....had to put my head down and get a bunch of stuff done last week for the Open House on Saturday, but I'm happy to be back creating again!

I really enjoy how simple the sketches at Skipping Stones Design are. There is so much freedom for interpretation.

As soon as I saw this week's sketch I knew I wanted to incorporate the sun. I also took the opportunity to finally break out the sewing machine I made the hubby drag down from the attic for me (like a month ago).

This is my first card ever that involves sewing, so it was a little bit of an experiment, but I kind of like it and I definitely want to do some more sewing on my projects....and it was fun. So, if any of you are nervous about putting machine to paper, don't be. It's just another great tool to use.
