Bosses Day!

Tomorrow is Bosses Day! So what better time to make a card then for a fellow crafter and Boss, right?  My Boss makes mini albums and seams to like the grungier look so this is what I came up with. I got the layout idea from Pickled Paper Designs. Thanks Amy :)

My lace and flower were both died with tea. The flower had a couple dropps of rich razzleberry added into the watter. Notice anything new? Yup! First time sewing on a card! Now my fears are put to rest LOL. The sentiment was printed out from word.

Entering this into the following challenges: (duh)
Woodware USA anything goes
 Top Tip Tuesday designer paper
Joyful Stamper anything goes
DYSU use your scraps (that's all I used!)
Forever Friends use a sentiment
MelJen's Designs use ribbon
Shelly's Images show us your layers
Truly Scrumptious destressing
Whimsy Stamps die cut/punches (butterfly)
Mami Doodles mother nature
Fall / Autumn colors:
Delightful Challenges
Pile it on
Wags 'n Whiskers
Stampavie and more
Digital Tuesday
I hope you enjoy it as much as I hope she will!
