Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 75

This week, at Crafty Cardmakers, the challenge is set by Lin, and it's to make something with stitching and lace, and as a (non-essential) twist, use a stitching-related image.



We are sponsored again by 


with this fabulous prize





I hunted through my available images, and despite having got into cardmaking by means of various forms of embroidery, I didn't have many stitching-related images, but I did find this one.

The image is a Sarah Kay, stamped with Memento ink and coloured with Promarkers. I trimmed the image and rounded the corners, then adapted a border from Erica Forgens 101 Ideas for Embroidery on Paper. After pricking the holes, I stitched it with gold thread. I cut and scored a piece of yellow card to make a 148mm square blank, and finished the card with some white lace.

So, show us your stitches and lace, and join us this week!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Digi Doodle Shop's Best where anything goes,
Dutch Dare where they want 'sugar and spice and everything girly',
Shelly's Images where anything goes,
Stamp 'n' Doodle where they want stitching,
Bearly Mine where anything goes,
Papelitos where anything goes,

Oh Josephine this is just gorgeous. I love the image of the little girl with her embroidery hoop in the centre of that beautifully embroidered frame. Perfection.

Sorry I haven't been by in sooooo long, but hopefully as I am finally settled in my new home I can pop by much more often.
