Magical Challenge ~ Creative Scrappers# 192

SEE  - I told you Scrapbook Challenges were addicting!!  ( well at least for me!)

OKAY - here is the Sketch I used for inspiration  ( 'cause we all need a little from time to time! LOL!)

So - I took this in a little different direction....
I hope you like it as much as I do!  I am so happy with how it came out!

Instead of Stars - I went with Hearts <3 !  I used more of the paper and embellies from My Mind's Eye, Stella and Rose collection, some Bazzill, and these ADORABLE fabric THICKERS from Amy Tangerine!!  In keeping with the stitching detail on the letters - I decided I needed to do a little hand stitching on this layout too!  Of course I had to add some BEADS from ArtC's Natural Bead collection!

I just LOVE all the colors in this collection!  You can get a good look at the distressing on all the edges - I again used Ranger Distress Stain in Rusty Hinge - you can really see it here on the photo - COOL huh!?  Oh - and this is a good close up of the hand stitching too.  See the little flap I folded over and did a Zig-Zag stitch on?! FUN!!  The tag you see is sprayed with Tattered Angel's GLIMMER MIST in Golden Terracotta and Sunflower - I used a PRIMA Swirl mask to get that cool look!

Here is another close up of the stitching and beading, and the cool canvas letters! Oh - I used Ranger Distress Stain in Barn Door Red to give the color and dimension to the red hearts too!

Here is an angle shot -to show you the dimension.  I added the center photo with HELMAR ZapDots - LOVE THEM!!!

So   - THANKS for stopping by - I hope you liked my take on this sketch challenge, and that I've inspired you to CREATE SOMETHING!!  ( get out your needle and thread and "have at it!" LOL!!)
