Monochromatic Boards & Beams...

Tired of "Boards & Beams" yet?? Well, I've got several more projects using this set so there will be at least a FEW more posts:) I'm working with my Realtor(and now friend) at Century 21 and have picked up a few of her co-workers who'd like a few things made. I'm really excited about this opportunity, but more excited to just create! You can see I even broke out my sewing machine which I haven't done in a long time. I forgot how much I love to sew on my cards...its the little things! This design is pretty simple, but elegant. Since I used a pastel pink on the house, I really needed something to help bring out the house and make it pop, so I decided to take my Cool Grey copic marker to help highlight the edges of the house. I then used my new Label One nesty dies to matte the focal image. The bg stamp is my Polka Dot Basics from PTI and I only sewed thru the layer of white paper. You can sew thru both the white and pink cs, but you will have to add a liner to cover the stitch marks on the underside. Lastly, I just added some bling and ribbon to the card and notebook!
