Just for You

It's Friday night, we've just had a delicious Chinese takeaway and all is well in the buttons household. The other day I mentioned that I was going to try stitching on my cards. Well, here it is. Now, be gentle, it's my first attempt and I know there is a loose thread and, yes, I can see the wonky bit but I have to say I am fairly pleased with the end result.

And, by a strange coincidence, the challenge on this weeks Truly Scrumptious is a brilliant sketch with the optional extra challenge of 'stitching'.

I have used 'Bunch of Flowers' from the DigiStamp Boutique as my main image. The boutique has a whole new range of trendy floral images, go check them out here.

The papers are from a Forever Friends pad ' Pink Parfait' and I used Copics to colour.

Enjoy your weekends.
