Let it Sew, Let it Sew, Let it Sew! (& double Blog Candy reminder)

CAS-ual Fridays is one of my newest favorite finds.  I combined this lovely sketch (rotated 270 degrees), this week's "Let it Sew" challenge at Jingle Belles, and created a very scrappy oh-so-June Houck card.  Wanna see?

I used some *new stash, old stash, and very old stash, and my sewing machine.

Supplies:
paper:  kraft card stock & red linen card stock (XPEDX); My Mind's Eye Abbey Road
*die cut scallop semi-circle:  doodlebug design, inc. happy holidays cute cuts cardstock die cuts
scallop die (left side):  MFT Die-namics
scrabble tile alpha stickers:  Making Memories
black dots rub-ons:  Stampin' Up!

Happy Saturday!
* Reminder: Double blog candy up for grabs on this post.
