House Mouse & Friends

The challenge on the House Mouse & Friends blog this week is...

Stitching

We would like to see stitching of any kind on you work. This could be a
reference to stitching in the text/sentiment. Real or faux stitching or just use
a stamp that would fit the theme!!

Here is my card. I've stitched around all the layers of my card with a green thread (I found a new stitch on my sewing machine!). The image was sent to me a while back now so sorry I can't remember who it was. I've used promarkers to colour it in. All the papers are by Basic Grey. On the bottom layer I used two embossing border folders and cut around one of them to make a scalloped edge. To finish off I added some gems and a photo corner.

Stamps:- House Mouse

Papers:- Basic Grey Sultry
