This card is for the Little Red Wagon Challenge: Birthday. My baby sisters baby graduates and turns 18 in two weeks so this card is for her. She is a beautiful young lady and it is hard to believe she is all grown up. She is a outgoing tomboy riding like the wind and then she can be so feminine so I chose this bright green, blue and black combo. I made a gate card with a pocket inside. The dp paper is Bo Bunny and solid SU. The black punched strips are with the MS doily and stitched on and the black is a #10 nestie accented with the green,a scalloped oval nestie. I used 6 matching green eyelets on the ends. The flower is punched and outlined and used the hand dyed seam binding to wrap around and tie close..On the inside I used the MS punch on the three rows of the pocket and stitched it.. The HB is computer generated and matted on the black. I also cut out 18 and matted it on the stripe and black with a jewel. The tag is the stripped paper then a layer of creme so I will be able to write my message to her. The pocket will also hold a gift card.

  10. Davi, Your stitching is fabulous and draws the eye to those luscious black borders. Very cute and clever folded card. Terrific color combo and that blue accent in the bow and DP is wonderful.
