Love You Sew Much

     Gerda Steiner Designs has the cutest little mouse for their Progressive Challenge this month!  She's sewing up a love note for someone very special.  This may just be my first Valentine card for 2018.  :-D


     I used ProMarkers to color the image, then cut it with a pinpoint die from Memory Box.  I chose a deep pink card base, which looks red in the photo but it really is pink.  The background die cut was a gift from one of the ladies in the Card Chain Challenge.  I do wish I could remember which lady because I'd love to give her full credit and a huge thanks.  It's just so perfect for this card! Wish I knew what company made that die.  It would definitely come to live at my house.

     I found a scrap of gray CS, ran it through my "linen" embossing folder, and added it to the card base.  Then I layered on the die cut and the image.  I tied one of my bow-tie bows using pink satin ribbon, and added it to the background.  I thought that was enough embellishment.  I really didn't want to cover up any more of that gorgeous die cut.
