It took a long time for this card to be born!! A week in fact. It is a dreary, dark and rainy day today, so the photo doesn't show the papers and colors as well as it should. I used the new Baby Tees jumbo wheel, with the sentiment from Picture This (hostess set-retired). My coloring skills are not great, which is why I chose a white onesie with pink accents! This is a 6 1/4 X 3 1/4 card made to fit the small open ended Stampin' Up! envelopes.!

Hope you have a wonderful birthday Janet!!
Don't you love it?!
The layout for the front of this card was inspired by Mojo Monday Week 142 sketch. I have a link on the sidebar where you can see all the other cards people made with this sketch. The sketch itself is below. I just turned it on its side.

It's a lot of fun to sew on cards. Adding just a little as a border can draw special attention to your card.
It's a little harder to notice in this one with the french knots. I went around twice in a wavy pattern, crossing over at different spots. Yes, french knots takes a bit of time, but very relaxing to do. I did these ones while watching (sort of watching) TV.
I used the large scallop Big Shot die as a border for this block. Just a little sewing around two edges, with brads to "tie" the block together.
The flower was made with the five petal punch. I quilted the whole block which give it a nice look, but can be a little time consuming pulling the threads to the back just like on a fabric quilt!
SEW, IF YOU HAVEN'T TRIED SEWING ON CARDS, GIVE IT A TRY!
