Button it...

My eBosser has arrived !  Thursday night it was going back because I thought it was pants.  Then I realised that I was using the shim instead of the embossing mat, and once the tears and tantrums subsided, I made friends with it.  Now we are going to get along just fine.  Actually better than just fine.  I love my button embossing folder.
Mo Manning sent out a request for inspiration not so long ago.  I wanted something sewing or quilted related.  Well I'm not sure if she noticed my request, or it's just a coincidence, but this lovely image appeared on her site.  As my mum is always asking me to design a quilting card for her to give to her friends, it was a must for my collection.  Thanks Mo.

I wish I could get my camera to take decent coloured photos.  This is such a warm card, yet looks cold here.
The sketch is courtesy of a different source for a change.  Thanks Sweet Sketch Wednesday.

In addition to their challenge, we are in to the following for this card too:

  19. Hi Anna thanks for the comment on my blog. Loving your card and such a cute image from Mo. As to my sparkle on the card I have used Stickles diamond, I photographed it slightly later in the day than normal and had to use my flash which I think brought out the sparkle more. Might have to do this more often as it has made it sparkle all the more.
    Happy crafting and thanks for popping by.
    Hugs Erika.
