Birthday Fortune


Hope everyone's weekend is off to a good start!  It's still a bit cold here, so I'm happy to stay inside and spend the afternoon making cards :) 

Today I have a birthday card to share.  I also wanted to participate in this week's Lawnscaping Challenge: Stitching. 

The thought of actually digging my sewing machine out and figuring out how to use it again gave me a headache, so I improvised with my paper piercer. 

I stitched the bottom of the card with some gold embroidery floss, which was pretty easy to do.  I do like the look of machine stitching, so maybe I'll have to get out the sewing machine at some point... some day... ;)  

For the background of the card, I used Mister Huey mists (desert, letter jacket).  I then added some washi paper and tape to ground the cute take-out box and fortune cookie.  They're both from the Good Fortune set by Lawn Fawn-- as is the sentiment.  For a little extra pizazz, I created an open take-out-box and added little colored accents to the chopsticks. 


I'll also be adding this to the Moxie Fab World Challenge: The Washi Tape Challenge. 

Thanks so much for visiting today!
