IC Sketch #29, Birthday Sewing, & Magical Monday

Our little great-niece Raegan turns two years old this week and her birthday party is Saturday. I knew that I wanted to use Minnie Mouse on her card so I used the Cricut Mickey & Friends cartridge and cut and assembled her and also selected some paper that I wanted to use with her. I then decided to wait for this week's Inspirational Card Sketch to see if it would work for Raegan's card using Minnie. The sketch is perfect and here is my card.





Now for the reason that I wanted to use Minnie Mouse on the card. My new embroidery machine is a Disney machine so I have all these wonderful Disney designs to use. For her birthday present, I made Raegan a denim jumper and embroidered Minnie Mouse on it. I added ribbon trim and decorative stitching at the hem line. I also made her a matching hair bow. I 'm not sure she has enough hair yet for a bow but we will see.






While rummaging through my stash of sewing things, I found that I still had a child's pink ball cap. I embroidered Raegan's name on it and added a bow and some hot fix crystals to give it a little bling.





You need to check out this week's Magical Monday at There's Magic in the Air. Nina has another free digital image that you can snag. The challenge this week is to made a card using the image and a sketch that she has provided. Here is my take on the sketch.







Luck, love and laughter,

Judy
