Anastasia Babushka by CS Designs

April 18th 2011
Here is my new Babushka creation using "Anastasia" from the new range of Babushkas at CS Designs. These little Babushkas are extremely versatile and are great not oly for Easter but any occasion!


This card is similar to the last one I made on April 7th using my sewing machine and earthy tones papers from my 6 x 6 BasicGrey pad. This one has been made using the sketch from the Gingersnap Creations Yahoo Group Challenge for April. I've paper pieced the Babushka image and "framed" it with a scallop edged Spellbinder die cut. The little "Thinking of You" sentiment is also from CS Designs. Everything has been machine edged on the card.


The Basic Grey Challenge Blog have a challenge with a theme of Spring/Easter. Over at Do You Stack Up they have a theme of "Scallops" so my little Babushka is going to be entered in their challenge this week as the oval cut out has a "scallop" edging! The Catered Crop Challenge has a requirement to use items from their 'recipe' and for this card I have used their - Pattern Papers (stripes & mini prints), Tools (sewing machine and die cuts) and Techniques (sewing). The Secret Crafters Saturday Challenge Blog also have "stitching" theme and with all the stitiching on this card I have entered it there as well! The Playdate Cafe Challenge is to use the following colours:
