Creative Inspirations Challenge #62 plus DT Call

Hi all we have a new challenge for you to try at
the theme is
Stitching Real and/or Faux
Our lovely sponsor is 

Here is my DT card 
For my card I have used  stamp that I bought from our sponsor quite some time ago but have only ever used it once before it is a SCAD stamp and she is a little beauty.
I have coloured her with Copics the faux stitching around the image is a Magnolia stamp inked with SU Melon Mambo, I used pink card and silver mirri board to mount her on.
The papers are Bearlymine and I thought that the striped paper looked like faux stitching and was appropriate.  The papers have all been mounted onto pink card I used a black liner pen for the stitching around the edge of the card and also for the flower centres.  The flowers were punched using my large retro flower punch the butterflies were punched using my Tonic punch, I added Black Diamond stickles to the centre of both the flowers and butterflies, finally I added a stamped sentiment.

Since school many, many moons ago I have had a mental blockage in threading the bobbin of a sewing machine, I have one of those little sewing machines also a rather expensive big one that my mum gave me many years ago.  I cannot use either of them as the bobbins have run out and try as I might I cannot thread it so they are just in storage. I have even watched C$C sewing programmes to see if I could watch how they do it but unfortunately that mental blockage just sticks with me.

We are also having a DT call so if you are interested in joining our wonderful friendly team the just enter DT after your name when entering your project for the challenge.

I would also like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Thank you for visiting I hope that you like my card but for some wonderful creativity and inspiration please pay a visit to the other DT their work is amazing.
Hugs to all.

Lorraine this is so sweet! I love the image. What a great idea to add the stitching inside the frame. Your flowers and butter flies are so much fun. I love the card.

Jules said...

Hi Lorraine

What a great card .. .. love the layout and papers.

Shame about your bobbin "brain blockage". I hope you manage to sort it out as it would be a pity to have lovely machines going unused.

Perhaps there are instructions or a users manual on line if you have a google!

Love Jules xx
