Good Morning fellow bloggers - what a glorious warm and sunny day here yesterday, I hope it was lovely where you were too :)
My card today is for our new challenge at Joanna Sheen where this time our theme is 'Totally Sentimental'. We would love to see your creations with a sentiment as a focal point. Now I often forget to add a sentiment at all to my cards, so it was good for me to concentrate on just that! lol :) As always there is a fab £15 Joanna Sheen voucher for the winner to spend online.
I used this gorgeous rubber stamp set called Take One Step and stamped and embossed on vellum the sentiment, the lace border and the really beautiful lacey heart.
Now most of you know I am a keen hand-stitcher, and mostly because I am quite terrified of sewing machines! - (They dont like me much either lol). Anyway, I was needing to speed the process up a little last week, so I dug out a little mini sewing machine I won (about the size of a teapot and worth about £20 LOL!) and decided to conquer my demons.
So........................ this is my first attempt at machine stitching on my cards - Ta Da!! :) Simples! LOL
I used Bazzil cardstock, Prima Fairy Belle papers, blue and brown vellum from stash and white embossing powder. The dies are a mixture of Doo Hickey and Marianne and the large flowers are WOC.
I am entering this card in the below competitions:
Stampalot - Take Flight
