Like I said, yesterday's card, although nicer looking in real life, did not meet up to my standards so I tried the inspiration challenge again. This time I found a little girl's skirt to use as my jumping off point. The skirt comes in red and blue and I chose to use the red one. I got out my Scandinavian Season stamp set mittens and although I have the wheel that goes with that, I decided to use another untouched wheel that I recently got - Illuminated - as the lower border.
The skirt also has some stitching near the top (smocking I believe), which brought me back to one of my earliest crafting interests. That's a story for another day.
Here I used the mat pack and paper piercer to make the holes which makes for nice even stitching. The thread is three strands of white embroidery floss.
Another untouched goody I had was the Red Riding Hood taffeta ribbon. That ribbon with the white edging was the perfect touch, don't you think!
