Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge #316

wed-newchallenge-header  
Welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge !! Thank you for joining us for the Tim Holtz Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too :-)
This week the challenge is...

Colour Swatch Teals and Blues

 We are using Simon Says Stamp this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some, we love to see them used :-)

Isn't the inspiration photo yummy? For my project, I knew that I wanted to create something sweet! I used the Sweet Treat card stock and created a paper-weaved background. I then embossed the donut in white and red on vellum.
Donut stop believing
 I hand-stitched the vellum to the paper-weaved piece. This card truly was a labor of love! I love the result and think it is a perfect card for encouragement. 

As always, Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store!

Such an intriguing and fascinating detail - that paper weaving that you have done to make this card SHINE!!! I am super impressed with the way each one of your cards has a special something that makes it stand out as a winner!! Such a fun and great card!!!

Love your paper-weaving, V, so colorful and unique! It takes me waaaaaaay back to brownies and girl scouts when we made "sit-upons" which were this very same thing, made from folded strips of newspaper which were woven together to make a square big enough to sit upon!!
