Love that Binds - CR84FN41

Welcome to another wonderful color challenge from the CR84FN Challenge Blog!  Thanks so much to those of you who played along with us for the last challenge, it's always wonderful to see how everyone uses the color challenges!  The next two week color challenge is Steel Blue, Gray and Yellow.  It took me some searching through my papers, but I found the beautiful colors in the My Minds Eye Lost and Found Sunshine paper pad and added in a strip (the measuring tape) from Prima's Printery collection.



I thought the sentiment from Our Daily Bread Designs Sewn with Love worked perfectly with the Sewing Machine image on the MME papers.  I stamped the sentiment in Gray using a SAMJ for placement.  To add some texture I used the Scor-Bug Embosser along with the Scor-Pal, I'll definitely be adding this to more of my cards!  To embellish my card, I dyed some Seam Binding with Ranger Distress Stain in Weathered Wood, Zva Creative Pearls, Prima Bobbin and May Road Trinket Pins.
