Bloggers Challenge 108: A Stitch in Time


This week our challenge was to use stitching of some sort on our card. Yeah!! My favorite! I love my little Janome sewing machine and I love to sew on my cards so this was an easy task this week.

I made this card for a co-worker who had surgery recently. My boss asked me to make a card for her from the staff at work and I thought that Happy Harmony would make a good choice. I combined with with the Raspberry Suite Challenge #12 this week to use bright pink, dark red, celery and cream. Love this color combination!
