A Crooked Detour


This is a little detour from my normal style, but I sure had fun with it!

I stamped one of the quotes from Let Us Begin (Our Daily Bread designs) in Brocade Blue on vellum and then embossed it with Clear Embossing Powder. After tearing the edges, I adhered it to my brand new K & Co. DP and then sewed the edges. A little ribbon, my favorite pearls, a punched EK Success Wavy border, and it was done!

Click on either photo for a close-up!

My fellow DT members on ODBD will tell you that I am a pretty straight-edge kind of girl. I normally do not put anything on at an angle, or purposely crooked, so I did today just to be a rebel. And no straight stitching! And a wavy edge! The vellum has a diamond pattern on it -- more angles!

Thanks for stopping by today! Tomorrow is a special day! Come back and see why~
