Tulle and a Limelight Sketch

It is time for another Limelight sketch and product focus. This week pull out your Tulle and put it to use. I did and boy am I glad. I forget how fun this stuff is and what great texture it can add to your project, and not to mention how pretty it is. Here's the sketch. So, yes, it's another big circle to work with and I was thrilled. This time I decided to give my sewing machine a test run in circular form. I wanted to do a zig zag stitch and it didn't turn out quite right. My circle was more of an ellipse. LOL! Free form, straight stitching was going to work much better for me. I did score a circle on my cs before I began stitching, just so I had a template to follow. When in doubt, take it around two or three times to help "hide" any imperfections.

Here's what I used to make this card.

Stamps: Something Within by Unity. LOVE these quotes. I stamped in Versamark, ran a mellow moss marker over the word Friend, and then clear embossed it. This helped is stand out a bit more on the kraft cs.

Paper: Sugared dp by Basic Grey, kraft, pink pirouette and kraft cs (all SU)

Accessories: Tulle, BitterSweet Brads, Janome sew mini, clear embossing powder
