Mint Julep

The Olympics are amazing. I have been glued to TV in awe, so I haven't made time for paper playing!

The play date cafe challenge #143 has my favie colooorrrssss. You know the ones: cherry, mint julep, and jade. Or as I know them, red and teal.

I made a birthday card for my friend's little boy who is turning 6. I used some punch outs from an old birthday stack (me and my big ideas, i think), october afternoon's "cakewalk" papers, and my new Sew Easy tool to thread the bottom.

I gotta say, the Sew Easy tool was not so easy. But I covered up the flaws and it looks ok in the end, just took many many practice runs!

  4. What a great birthday card, Rachel! The elements are so fun together. Your sewing looks great despite your troubles.. maybe practice makes perfect? I've never tried the Sew Easy, so I don't know! Thanks for joining us for this week's color challenge at the Play Date Cafe!

  5. Your card is absolutely WONDERFUL! Such a great take on the PDC colors!
    The sew easy is quite tricky - I think!
