It's challenge #140 over at THE CRAFTY PAD and this week it's STITCHING. We want to see stitches on your cards. The sponsor is CRAFTY SENTIMENT DESIGNS and 3 digi images of your choice is the prize for the winner this week.

To make my card, I designed my own papers.

All of the elements (see below) were taken into Photoshop, resized and placed around the paper and I used this as my background. The patterned paper was also done in Photoshop and I used a border punch and pearls to just enhance it a little. The buttons were stamped and cut out and a piece of lace finished it off.

Debbie has just released some new silhouette images with a sewing theme, and this week all the design team used the sewing machine and elements.

You can buy the images separately or as a set, so why not pop over and treat yourselves.

Entering into:
MY SHERI CRAFTS #69 - Sew Simple.
SHOPPING OUR STASH - No colouring.
OUR CRAFT LOUNGE #84 - Patterned paper.
WAGS 'N WHISKERS #63 - Lace.

Lorraine, this is a beauty! That lace trim is gorgeous and perfect!!! Ironically it would also work for this week's Shopping Our Stash challenge: B&W + one other color…perhaps you should make another :)
