One Stitch at a Time Challenge 119

This week at One Stitch at a Time, our theme is 'summer dresses'. So, what does that mean to you? Colours, florals, actual dresses ... it's up to you!

Our sponsor this week is Joanna Sheen who's offering a £10 voucher to the lucky winner!

My card this week is 'Window' from My Heart Pieces, and it's a beautifully summery image.
 I coloured the image with Promarkers, and cut it and the mat using nestibilities in my Wizard. The paper is from MME's Summer pad which was a magazine freebie last year, and the pretty floral design would make a lovely summer dress. The mat is some 'paper' which I picked up a while ago. It looks like a very thin wood veneer, but I actually have no idea whether it's paper or wood. It took more cutting than paper would, but didn't crack as I thought it might, and I think it works so well with all the woody tones in the image. The long-legged bird overlooking the scene is one of the embellishments that came with the paper pad.

Hope you can join us this week.

Your card is very nice! I really like your stamped "window" image. You did a nice job coloring it with the Promarkers. I also really like your die cut "frame" that is showcasing your stamped image. That looks really good! Thanks for joining us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy
