First Sewn Together Card

I was notified by email Monday, Aug. 17 from Angela telling me that I was one of the folks chosen for her new Design Team over at Sewn Together. I'm really excited because Angela has some super cute images in her store that I can't wait to play with them. Be sure to check out the other great Design Team Members. Their blogs are in my right sidebar. Lots of talented women in this group! Congrats to everyone that made it, and a special thank you to everyone that visits my blog. Be sure to visit Deployed Designs because they have a Freebie digital image every Friday....you can check it out here....http://sewmanycards.com/Freebie_Friday.php and get the Christmas image that you can use to jump start your Christmas cards with. (I still have discounted cards from After Christmas sales to last me a few more years yet.)

My first card using a Sewn Together image. It's Halen the Hair. I picked him because it looked like a great Back-to-School image but my paper choices make me think "baby".

I followed and flipped Mojo Monday's 100th Celebration #7 sketch. The papers used were a freebie in a UK card magazine and I cut them into 1.25 inch squares. I colored the bunny with my Prisma markers using French Gray 20% with a darker gray (FG30%) for his bangs and under the ears. I used my Creative Memories circle cutting system for the circles. I used my Studio G glitter glue to make the three dots in the lower right corner. TIP: do not use your embossing heat tool to try speeding up the drying process...I made at least one dot act like it was boiling.

Thanks for looking and be sure to check everyone else's cards out too.
