Floral card and a sewing project

Hey there folks.  Today I have a card for SP and Company, using one of my favorite sentiment sets- Bold Sentiments.

I have a HUGE stash of patterned paper that I rarely use, so I challenged myself to start using it.  I made this card with the Lily Pad Cards and CAS-ual Fridays challenges in mind :)


And before I go, I wanted to share a sewing project I did.  A friend of mine just had a baby girl, and I wanted to make her something.  I had considered a plush duck, or elephant, or something else appropriate for a baby...... then I stumbled upon a VERY cute Chewbacca pattern.  PERFECT! My friend and her husband are huge Star Wars geeks (who isn't?), and she just loved the gift. It's a bit bigger than her infant daughter, but she'll grow into it :)



(yes, those are our action figures in the background)

LOL! That Chewbacca is brilliant, Jen! Beats a duck any day!

And love that patterned paper. Sometimes I'm intimidated by such large patterns but you used it beautifully. :)

This card is GORGEOUS! I love the paper! Do you know what kind that is?

Chewy is super cute! What a great gift! I'm sure they got TONS of elephants, giraffes, bears, etc... I'm certain this will be the only Chewy. :D

I never know how to use papers with bold patterns, but your card is stunning! The sentiment banner breaks it up perfectly.
You are so multi-talented! Look at that adorable Chewbacca! My hubby would want to know why I didn't make one of these for our kids. What lucky friends you have!

I was going to comment on the lovely way you dressed the sentiment, but I'm totally distracted by the adorable Chewy. Nice job (on both projects)!
