This is for the technique challenge which is making a Bargello. I followed Joan's directions, which you can find HERE. I then used the nesties to make the shape after I made all the strips using My Mind's Eye dp. I layered with SU Chocolate Chip cs, then cut around the shape. I used my sewing machine to make the zig zag stitching around the shape as well as the lines in between. I also ran it through the CB Sawtooth folder. The base of the card is SU Chocolate Chip cs, I layered with My Mind's Eye rose dp & again with SU Creamy Caramel cs. I used my sewing machine again to do a tighter zig zag stitch around the creamy caramel & rose dp, then used the CB Sawtooth folder again. I also decided to add a piece of chocolate ribbon underneath the main shape. Then I adhered the panel to the base of the card. I added cream swirl pearls, used the MS Branch punch on SU More Mustard cs. I used DMC cream floss through the brown buttons, hot glued them to the prima flowers.
This was up my alley tonight as I was making quilt cards this afternoon....shhhh! I'm suppose to be working on 2 quilts.
