I love the scallops and the fence on the first card - finished off with the jaunty little twine bow! And the panels with the pumpkins are a wonderful, eye-catching touch!

Carol L said...

Both of your cards look amazing! I just love how you layered and stitched the scalloped borders on the Rhubarb card, and the split image on the 2nd looks SO pretty with that fantastic diecut sentiment panel!

Just love, love love your style! The way you layer elements is beautiful and sophisticated! Would love to learn more about using a sewing machine. I don't know how to sew..do you use a full size machine?

Mahalo for the great instructions and the fantastic cards - both had such great detail! Can certainly believe that the pumpkins stamp is sold out - getting it digitally may help get me started on using digital stamps!
