Friday Sketchers

Morning everyone, wow what a night we had!! It was like a hurricane here, rain lashing , winds blowing!! Woke up this morning and there are branches everywhere and alarms going off. At one point I thought we would have a power cut as the lights dimmed several times.

Not a very good photo of my card this morning as it's so dark and gloomy outside and I'm tired. I don't have time to do it later as Milly is off to the vet to have her bloods taken to see if the rabies jabs have worked.

Anyway onto the card......
this week Friday Sketchers have given us another great sketch to do





Here's the sketch made by Kimmie this week.








Before I explain my card I've got to tell you I was quite chuffed with myself because I managed to fix my sewing machine!!! I haven't got a clue generally but I was so fed up not having one as I'd seen loads of beautiful cards with stitching on, that I thought I'd have a go. And after tightening up some bits and pieces and cleaning the bobbin bits , it worked a dream!!

For this card I've used another Alota stamp from a set called Molly Moo . She's been coloured in with prismas and zest it and then layered up onto pink card and a piece of the co ordinating papers. For the background I have used papers layered onto pink cs and stitched in pink or brown thread around them with a zig zag stitch. I've put a piece of brown and pink ribbon across the middle and 3 flower brads down the right hand side. The sentiment has also been layered up onto card and paper. It is also an Alota stamp.

Stamps:- Alota
Papers:- Sassafras - Pretty Polly
Card Stock:- Stampin Up
