Stitching challenge at Crafty Ann's

Hi there,  we've got a brand new challenge over at Crafty Ann's, this time we want to see stitching on your cards. As always our lucky winner will get their mits on a fabby prize from Crafty Ann's Digi Shop! I''m still out of action for colouring with my pain in the neck lol but i'd coloured this a while ago, isn't it a beautiful image?

Its Crafty Ann's 'Beautiful Hibiscus' it comes with the sentiment and I just love it! (you can find it here) I've coloured the image with promarkers and cut it out. The base card is covered with one of Crafty Ann's mottled stone backing papers, its a lovely delicate pink. I was very brave with this card and dusted off my sewing machine!! I stitched a border around the edge and then was even braver and added a line of embroidery to create a border across the card. I've added some rose pink velvet ribbon, lace and edged the card with faux pearls made with cosmic shimmer glue.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
2 Sisters: use a digital image
Crafty Place: anything but a square or rectangle
Simon says stamp: anything goes

We;ve got torrential rain again here today, hopefully all these April Showers will bring lots of May flowers, they're certainly helping the weeds grow if nothing else lol. If you've got a few minutes do pop over to check out my teamies beautiful projects, Crafty Ann has some gorgeous new digikits in her store too
Thanks for visiting today

  1. Beautiful Claire. It's given me some much needed inspiration for using those shaped cards. Had them for ages - keep getting them out and putting them back. The central image is lovely and all those faux pearls! How did you get them all so neat?
