Sunday's rolled around again, and we have a fun challenge at Paper Sundaes--to make a card following the theme "Pretty as a Princess".
For my card I went my own way on this--never one to follow the road most travelled LOL!
I used the WOJ Rogue Charlotte image that Simon Says (this weeks sponsor) carries, and my card is for empowered princesses :-)
When I was a girl I refused to wear pink or ruffles, and was enchanted with the idea of princesses who would sneak out of the castle and dress as commoners for adventures, so to celebrate my ideal of a princess, here you go :-)
And did you see--we dug the sewing machine out of the crawl space, cleaned it off, read the manual, threaded it (that took a while to figure out! and I managed a bit of (not so perfect) sewing! Yay! I have been inspired by all the sewing I'm seeing here in blogland on cards, and finally decided I had to join in.
I'm very open to suggestions as to how to use my sewing machine-- it is a Singer and there are a lot of knobs and things that I am afraid to touch. One problem is that it skips spots here and there, as you can see on the left hand side about mid way up. Why is it doing that? Also, what do you do on the corners so it doesn't look all gimped? PLEASE give me some pointers!
Anyway, I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. If you have time to play along with us we'd like to see your version of a Pretty as a Princess card :-)
