JustRite and CPS!

This week JustRite is sponsoring CPS! It is sketch # 166! You can find it HERE! Making longer skinny cards is a bit out of my comfort zone. I think because I feel like I need to "fill" up the space! You know how much "stuff" I usually like on my cards! LOL! So I did have to do a bit of sewing (took up some space) and added two strips of designer paper (took up more space), and added pearls to the corners, (can't even leave the damn corners empty!). LOL! For the main image I used the Hope Border and Center set. The image was cut out with my Spellbinder's Label's One die set. The edges were glittered. : )

I just love the look of this colored seam binding. I see it so often on Michelle Wooderson's cards as well as Melissa Phillip's cards. There is such a pretty softness to them! I am officially hooked! Because Lord knows, I need another obsession!

I did a teeny angel's wing to the button, but it is hard to see in the photograph.


I hope you can play along with us and CPS this week! : ) Have a great day!!!!
Don't forget to go HERE for your chance to win two Cutting Cafe' files! (The strawberry template and the banner set!!!) I will draw a name later tonight!

Wow, this just jumped out at me on the JustRite blog, and I had to come to see more details! Beautiful card! LOVE the colors! If you have time, I'm very curious as to what technique you use for glueing and glittering the edges of the Labels 1 die cuts? It's such a gorgeous finishing touch!
