MIM~Strawberry Birthday




I love sketches so this week's MIM was perfect. I chose the above sketch and got to stamping:) For my vertical stripes I pulled out my new Distressed Stripes set. This is an old set that I never paid much attention to in the past, but I saw some great projects with it and fell in love. I love making my own pattern paper and adding stripes is just perfect. I added a score line for my dividing line and pierced holes to stitch with embrodiery thread. I then pulled out Strawberry Patch (which I love more and more) and die cut, stamped and glittered.The top section with the sentiment seemed to plain to me leaving it just white, so I paired my strawberries with Lace Bouquet. I hope you like it:) Thanks for stopping by!

Such a darling birthday card. I love distressed stripes, too, and never even thought of them with this sketch--but they are perfect. Cute idea with the stitching, as well.
