My Cuban Experience ... plus a baby shower card!


I'm sharing both a layout and a card today folks!

The layout that I created is based on the following lovely Creative Scrappers sketch ... and I'm also entering it in the Frosted Design Quilting Challenge ... as I've used my sewing machine to "quilt" all around the photos.

This is my take on the sketch ...
I chose to document a few photos from a day trip to Havana that I took when I visited Cuba a number of years ago.

The quilting is nice and subtle ... I sewed all of the pictures down like they were patches and sewed around the background photo mat and then around again and then across the mini alphas ... lots and lots of sewing!

Now onto a card that I created for the Friday Mashup decorative edge and ribbon card challenge!

I used my scallop punch to edge the bottom of the card. 

I used some bright green ribbon to add that extra colour and bring out the green in the cute gators in the paper!

Thanks for checking in!
