U R Sew Fun

I'm entering the following card in two challenges:

1) Challenge Me Monday #98 over at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge blog
      Fun with Puns challenge

2) Cricut Cardz Challenge 102 over at the Cardz TV blog.
     A Stitch in Time  - make a project using real or faux stitching, any occasion, any cartridge, any color

Here's my card:

Close up


My double "stitches" are done using the We R Sew Stamper tool.  (I'll be honest, I'm not having the best of luck with this tool.  I bet other people do great with it. I probably just am not using it right.)

I used the Nifty Fifties Cricut cartridge for the Sewing Machine,Dress, Dress Form and for the "UR Sew Fun" letters. 
Most of the papers I used are from my scraps. The background paper is DCWV. 
Ribbon is from my stash. 
I used Martha Stewart Lilac ink to ink the edges. 
I used my Marvy corner punch to round two of the edges. 
The "You are the Best" stamped sentiment is form My Creative Time's "My favorite sayings" set.
I used sandpaper to rough up the gray layers. 

I think that covers everything.

Thanks so much for looking.  Don't forget to leave me a comment. I love hearing your thoughts on the project.

    1. Thanks Michelle. I have trouble lining it up and it seems to blob the ink for me. :( I'll keep practicing. I'm sure you'll see me again for another challenge.
