Scrap Happy while sewing a wavy border

It's time again for my weekly CCEE challenge. This week Cindy Haffner picked Scrapgirl as our CNFS (Catchy Name Featured Stamper) from SCS for us to make a card for. We were challenged to make a card with a girl image and scraps.

I thought it would be fun to sew my scraps together and thought the new Wavy border punch by EK success would be fun to use. The border shape and the holes make it easy to sew together. I just lined up the waves, linking them, glued them to the Papaya Puree Light cs, pierced the holes and hand sewed with embroidery floss. I love the look and feel of the finished panel. (All the edges of the panels were ink distressed with Old Paper before assembling.)

I chose this darling Sarah Kay Image called Precious Moments, stamped it with Tuxedo Black (Memento) onto Simply Smooth cs (Prism), and colored it with copics. I gave it some dimension with layers and dimensional tape.

I made the sentiment Medallion with the Times Roman 25pt upper and Lowercase fonts. I then used the Long Rectangles (Nestabilities - Spellbinders) to frame my image, and the circle and circle Scallops (Nestabilities - Spellbinders) for the medallion. The flower was made with Martha Stewart and Carl CarlaCraft punches. The flower center is a Black Pearl (Kaisercraft).

If you'd like to see what the other girls have come up with for this challenge, head on over to our CCEE Stamper's blog. We'd love to have you participate in the challenge too. Just make a card with some scraps and a girl image and link it with your comment HERE.

Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you all had a Blessed Easter!!
Happy Stamping!!
Tosh

I grew up with Precious Moments. I had some of their books and loved these images. This card instantly brought me back to happy childhood memories. Also, hand sewing something... I have to try this now. I just hope it's not for a project that I have to make multiple cards :)
Thanks for sharing
