Hi there! I wanted to share my card for the second Viva la Verve sketch this month, this one had some cool oval panels on the sides. I decided to machine stitch my panels to my base layer - then proceeded to almost cover them entirely, isn't that always the way?!
I used Birthday Surprise and paper pieced the balloons on a sponged panel cut with nesties. The Charlotte's Dream papers from Kaisercraft were so soft and pretty I almost felt bad covering them up with a giant bow and button!
Hope your week is going well so far! Jackson is almost over his cold thank goodness. We're starting to get back to normal around here!
