A FB challenge card

This weekend I had the chance to sit down and make a card just for the fun of it, well it was for a challange but I wasnt forced to do it lol 
I am part of a fab facebook group called The Craft Cuboard Show and Tell, its a group for people who love to craft and show off their makes as well as chat about all things crafty and a few other things in between.  

We have some lovely admin who create fun challenges with some fab prizes.  This Challenge was created by Stella, its a sketch challenge here s the card that I made for the sketch.

The stamp was a freebie from Simply Homade magazine and I LOVE it, the sentiments are hand stamped with individual alphabet stamps, flowers are papermania and the brads, the papers are DCWV I think but will have to check I love them and could hardly bear to use them!  I used a distressing tool around the edge of the papers and then did faux stiching around the edge of the papers.

I must get off here and go do some sewing, easter will soon be here and I have lots of things I want to make!

Catch you all soon

  4. LOVE your card Lisa - I've also got that stamp (also uninked!) but I'm sure it will get used in time. Love the handstamped sentiments though - couldn't agree more!

  7. This is gorgeous. I have this stamp too and I have been wondering how to use it. Love how you kept it plain and just added the pretty ric-rac.
    Thanks for the tip on checking out Youtube for quilting vids.
    I am like you, but with Pinterest - I can spend hours on there. ;-)
