Friday Fun with The Character Cafe!!

Happy Friday Everyone!! Welcome to The Character Cafe's Weekly Friday Challenge!! Our challenge, issued by one of our super fab DT members, was the following:

  • use only ONE Designer Paper
  • limitless layers
  • buttons
  • ribbon
I chose to work with the RIDICULOUSLY ADORABLE "The Serenade" image!!! Perfect for my FAVORITE holiday...VALENTINE'S DAY!! I love it. I always have!! I love the candy, the colors, the cuteness, everything about Valentine's day is just simply divine to me!!

My base is Martha Stewart Cardstock that I purchased in a huge pack on sale at Michael's. The next layer is SU! Tempting favorite all time color in crafting! The sparkly red paper is Doodlebug designs 'sugar coated' designer paper that I just picked up the other night at The Paper Source. I'm hoarding it by only using a little because I love it so much! LOL!

You'll notice that I used a cool loopy stitch on my NEW! sewing machine to stitch those 3 layers together. I then colored up my cutie pie with my Copics and Sakura Gel Pens. I also added some glittery fun with my glue pen and Martha Stewart glitter in Turquoise. I backed my image with black cardstock and adhered it with pop dots.

My buttons are from my LSS, decorated with ribbon and cord and adhered with pop dots. Lastly, I tied a pretty, sheer, turquoise ribbon in a loose knot a the bottom to balance everything out.

I hope you enjoy my creation!!

I just LOVE the stitching... so cool! The way you did the music notes in red works so well too, and of course, the glitter (what's a project without glitter right?)!!! Great job :)
