Sew Lucky

Dena PII

I needed a gift for my sister for her birthday.  I am one that  loves giving a handmade
gift.  She works in a school and is so good with the kids. So I created this
card using the Pure Innocence image.. These images are available
at My Favorite Things.  The back panel is a piece of fabric I stitched to the
cardstock.  The pattern on her dress is from a piece of burlap that I soaked
in clear copics blender solution (Saw Debbie Olson demo that at CHA)
You soak it and then quickly lay it onto the colored area you want to texture.  Don't let it sit too long.

Then I quilted her this bag.  I hope she likes it.  All of the fabric is from my local
sewing store.  Part of the proceeds go to St. Judes Children's Hospital..I like that. 
Happy Birthday Sweet Sis....

  24. Dawn, your card looks amazing! I always forget to add texture like that. Plus I have to score some burlap, jeans and other textures at JoAnn's or somewhere...
