I was delighted to find oiut Lin was today's Featured Stamper, I'd recently come across her work and love it - congrats, Lin! Here is one of the cards I chose to CASE today. I changed the colour scheme, did two step stamping instead of paper piecing with the flowers and stitched the chevrons for a different look (so.....I won't be doing that too often - you have to pull through every single thread to the back!). I also changed the sketch slightly.

ACK! If I thought the zig-zag stitch was awesome now you've changed it up on me! I realize you didn't include this card in the CAS gallery but I'm thinkin' you could have. The design layout is just wonderful, bold, bright, love that two step stamping too. But you've still left some very well planned white space. This card (IMHO) is a very good example of how to use bold elements and a large sentiment and still get a nice clean and simple look. You just make it look to easy Bridget *wink*

I have a friend who loves this scripture verse .... so when I saw your beautiful card I sent it to her as an e-card! I'm sure she'll love it!
