TSG158 - Cork

Hey y'all! Well, I'm wrapping up the end of my first week of summer vacation. I had some stamping time today, so I made a card for this week's There She Goes Challenge #158.

This week our challenge is brought to us by our Trendsetter of the Week, Karen! She is challenging us to make a card or project using cork!! The possibilities with cork are endless, so we can’t wait to see what you do with it!!

I used the Cute as a Button stamp set for this card. This set is my new favorite!! I stamped the dress form image in Memento Tuxedo Black. I cut it out with Oval Nestabilities and accented the edge with a Cream Viva Pearl Pen. The papers are Cosmo Cricket Material Girl, and I used a bit of cork for the scalloped strip. I stitched all around the edges. You just have to stitch on a card that's focused on sewing! :) I finished it off with some CUTE ribbon and a button!

This layout is Freshly Made Sketches #37.
