September Card Chain Challenge Reveal

Here's my card for The Card Chain Challenge September reveal. Anyone can enter and if you'd like to be part of the October chain you can sign up here until til 6th. 

This is the card I sent to Carol in the UK. I've been following Carol's blog, Crafty-stamper, for many years, so it was fun to send a card to someone "I know" for a long time as well.

I was inspired by the sketch and the theme of friendship. And I used cheesecloth as gauze, which was one of the product options this month. It was still very warm and more summer than autumn when I made this card. I used kraft paper with white gesso and a wooden embossing folder to make the background, and I scored lines to make the panel strips.I added a picture from a Studiolight die cut sheet and found matching flowers in my stash, which I decorated with pearls.I also used a white paper lace border.



In return I received a fun colorful card from Linda W of Scrappin', Stampin' & Singin' in Minnesota, USA. Linda was the first person I sent a card when joining this chain, back in September last year, and a year later it was my return to receive one from her. Thanks, Linda, I loved it and it's up on my wallboard in my craftroom.

Very sweet!!! I'm happy to see a pink card from you, Pia! :) It isn't a colour you used often, but every time you created something very pretty with it. Love the cheesecloth and the flowers you added!

Clever idea how you are doing the background, Pai. Like your card. I was on vacation - out of town - so i am a little late with my comments for the CCC.
