Our challenge today was to create a card with needles and pins. I had no idea what I was going to do for this card and very little time to do it. This is when the creative process amazes me. I knew I wanted a vintage style but that was it. So I searched through my vintage graphics file until something inspired me. This graphic of the girl and the bird in a cage is from The Graphics Fairy . I cut the word with my slice and the basic 1 cartridge. I sprayed the top of the card and graphic with Sea Blue glitter mist. this is the only glitter mist I own, but there was a lot of blue shadow in the graphic and it matched perfectly-too bad you can't really see it in the photo. The graphic was matted on olive green cardstock with the edges roughed up and inked with walnut. My hands are working a little bit, but not enough to sew, I had my daughter do the stitching on the vine trim. Then added 2 pearl-headed pins and the little flowers.
