Well those two weeks went quickly again, I seem to be on catch up all the time lately so this card was hastily created yesterday I'm afraid. I know the date is coming up and then...boom...it's here and I'm not prepared. Anyway challenge #11 was set by Zoe and her theme was to use - ' A button, 3 brads, ribbon and one other accessory'. For some reason I found this quite challenging, but hey, that's the point I hear you all saying, so here's my card...
Little Holly Berry stamp - Winter Faerie Poppets-Crafters Companion
Papers -Magazine Freebies
Diamond Stickles for wings
Linen Thread Stitching - Stampin 'Up
I went with a vintage Christmas theme this time and thought this sweet little Holly Faerie worked well. I also tried a new thing for me...stitching. I don't own a sewing machine so I thought I would dip my toe in the water with a few hand sewn stitches around the image, I think it turned out ok, I'm quite pleased. All the papers and cardstock were edged in Vintage Photo Distress Ink and the little bell I have had in my stash for ages.
