You are sew CrafTy!

Weekend is just around the corner and I am excited because the weather is great with the rain pouring in and weekend would be ideal for a small getaway with DH :)

Today I am sharing a card using the colors from Color Cue {16} and the inspiration comes from the Tuesday Trigger at Moxie Fab World. I was so excited those colorful spools of thread because I knew my recently purchased Lawn Fawn Sew Lovely set has a cute spool stamp :D

Supplies: cardstock: Elle Erre Fabriano!; stamps: Lawn Fawn (Sew lovely,Smitty's ABC),; ink: Momento (Tuxedo Black), Unity Co. (French lilac);  Embellishments: Maya Road Chipboards (Brackets),embroidery floss

For this card, I stamped the spool on craft paper, cut it out and wrapped the embroidery floss around them. Then I stamped the needle from the same set and inserted it in the spool. For the sentiment, I masked of lovely and used the alphabet stamp set to add Crafty.  To finish off the card, I added brackets from Maya Road.  And with all the spool of threads and a needle, this card fits perfectly for the I'm Sew Excited! Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.
Here is a closeup of the lovely spools

And before I sign off, I wanted to thank all of you for the tremendous response on my Guest Blogger post at Do More With Less. Your feedback and appreciation really means a lot to me.

I would love for you to play along my challenge. Please remember that you can use any kind of embossing - dry or wet. And here is a small tip if you do not have embossing powder or cuttlebug, you can scor your paper to achieve embossing. Check out my card here using the same technique. I hope you got the hint. *wink*

For my readers who aren't aware of the Diwali festival, Diwali is known as the festival of lights and one of the biggest festivals in India signifying the victory of good over evil. This year we are celebrating Diwali on 5 November. We celebrate by decorating our houses, lighting candle, fireworks, lots of good food, and lots and lots of sweets (I love this part :D) 

Okay now enough of blabbering, here is a card a made for the Moxie Fab World Challenge - Perfectly Placed Pleats  and Speedy the Cat's Friend's Challenge - Stitching

Look how the paper pleats make for the cutest candles. Doesn't that stitched sentiment look pretty too?

After I made one and liked it, I went crazy experimenting with colors, size, and various different things :D
Here is another variations I came up with.
