One Stitch at a Time Challenge 138

This week at One Stitch at a Time, we're having that easiest of all challenges: Anything Goes!

Our sponsor this week is

and

This week, I worked with an image from Gingerloft, and it's one of three in her set called Vintage Valentine Set. And just to show that they're versatile, I didn't make a valentine card or anything specifically romantic at all!

The image is supplied in black and white, but I decided to soften the effect by changing those shades to brown and cream. Then, still in Photoshop Elements, I added a border to the image in a pale saffron shade before printing. I matted it on dark brown, and then on some textured metallic coated paper and I mirrored the stars in the image using a punch I've had for many years. I mounted all of that onto more of the dark brown card, and finished with a roughly tied bow.

Hope you can join us this week.

The Paper Shelter where anything goes,
