The Thing About Courage

I'm late late late to the party, but squeezing in an entry for the CR84FN Design Team Call.  The inspiration photos there are always so lovely, but for whatever reason, I honestly thought the deadline wasn't till next week.  Oops.  (This back to school craziness has my mind in a spin.)

It's been a while since I've done some late night stamping (and it was a late night) but the house was finally quiet, and I had a beautiful inspiration photo to work with.  Thank goodness for the possibility of an extra cup of coffee this morning, it's going to be a rough one.

I knew I had some denim-ish papers in that scrap bin, but then, I tripped across this chippy blue paint one, which to me still reads rustic, denim loved and worn.

I'm using a sentiment from Vertical Greetings and I'm really having a blast with the new Flower Medley Die-namics.  In particular, I love how it looks cut from felt and with a twine tied button sitting right on top.

All these papers are directly from the scrap-bin, nothing is a matched set today.  I'm using Hot Fudge Cardstock for all my accents, and loads of distress ink on all the papers.  I'll admit that I totally decimated the desk that was at long last finally clean and organized. I'm going to need to sort that out today, but at 1am, that was just not a priority.

Admittedly, deciding to zig-zag stitch a layer after the card is fully assembled isn't ideal, but that certainly didn't stop me.  I meticulously pulled off all the dimensional foam I'd added to the cardbase and then zipped the card through.  I may or may not have, (read that as most certainly did) hold my breath while stitching and prayed that I didn't mess up the card.  In the end, it was just the touch I needed.  Phew!

Be sure to join the girls at CR84FN to see this week's inspiration, as well as all the samples that have been loaded.  Oh won't you please wish me luck? Thanks a million!

Here's links to all the products I've used in today's post. Thanks SO much for stopping by today!
