One Stitch at a Time Challenge 112

This week at One Stitch at a Time, we're challenging you to use a digi, and, if it's not already gone where you are, do something for Mother's Day.

This week, my team mate, Hazel chose an image for both of us. It's from Floppy Latte and it's called Butterflies and Flowers.

In the UK, Mother's Day is in March, and I don't have anyone to make a Mother's Day Card for any more, so I've just gone for something feminine that would work if it needed to!

I made up my mind to keep the colours in the image very pale, but struggled with that when it came to the butterflies! Still, it's a bit of a departure for me, and I've used some paper from Paper Cellar that I've had for ages. It's a pad of Victorian style paper that is absolutely gorgeous, but I've always struggled to use it because the colours are quite muted.

I coloured the image with Promarkers, and finished the card with some ribbon and lace, as well as some flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, a local stationers and Hobbycraft!

This week, we're sponsored by Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps.
The winner, who has to use something from Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps in their creation, will win all the images and the papers used by the design team, and the runner up will win a $3 token for the shop.

Hope you can join us this week!

Digital Tuesday where they want 'bugs and blooms',

I love muted colours and nearly always use them - I'm glad I went a different route with this card or we would have ended up very similar! I'm late in commenting because we've had son and DIL here for lunch. Happy days. Hazel x

Gorgeous card Josephine. I love the contrast of the muted shades on the image and paper with the mat and ribbon, everything is so well balanced. I love the lace, so very pretty and delicate.

Love Mandy xxx
