Hi Susan here.

Today at 2 Sisters we are beginning a new challenge, the theme is 'Stitching' whether its faux or real!! Our sponsor is Crafty Sentiments, fabulous digi images, so cute and they are offering 2 free digi images for the winner of this challenge. Full details of the challenge can be found on the 2 Sisters Challenge Blog. If you're needing some inspiration then don't worry just take a look at the Design Teams creations and that will get you moving! Come along and have some fun!

Now back to my card....

I have used an older sketch this time from Crafts 4 Eternity.

My backing papers are a mixture from my stash, of course I had to use one of my favourite colours, pink, the check flowered one is from a set of CD roms from Create and Craft called Triple Treasures. I used a Multi Shaper AllDeco Punch for the edge of the blue card. All have been stitched on the sewing machine.

The pearls are from my local market and the butterflies are called 'Fly Stickers', sorry can't remember where they are from I have had them for ages, but never liked the silver foil edges that they came with in the packet, so I trimmed off the foil and here they are now, I much prefer them this way.

This gorgeous digi image I have been very lucky to use on this card is called 'Pat' and she can be purchased from Crafty Sentiments. I coloured her in using Pro-Markers and then gently inked the background before distressing the edge and stitching the topper.

My flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:-

Thank you for taking the time to look at my card, I hope you liked it.

Love Susan
