When I saw the new fadengrafik-challenge says "Wedding", I already knew which heart-pattern I'd use. I haven't begun thinking about the shape of the card yet, when I by coincidence found the cheerfulsketcheschallenge, and it crossed my mind to cmbine the two challenges.
So, this was the task
And this is what I've done
I made the card in brown-cream-white colours and stitched two golden hearts. I tried to keep it simple, though I think I would have added even less decorations if it wasn't for the sketch-challenge.
As I was in perfect crafting mood, I stitched two more cards in the same style: one with a strawberry that will probably be the birthday card for my mom, and a maritime-card. In each of them, I used colours and decorations that would fit the main motif. As stitching only didn't present the motifs in a way I imagined it should (especially not the sailboat), I decided to help out with my coloured pencils.
Unfortunately, the embossed background is not visible in the latter photo
Apart from the arrangement and the stitching, the three cards have one more thing in common: all supplies that I used were those I had home already - and they seem to fit as if they waited all this time for these cards to be made. That would be the using-up challenge, I guess :)
