Singing in the Rain!!



Well I decided this week to make a card for the Friday Sketchers Challenge, I loved their sketch, and also to fit it in with Just Magnolia, with a card that features stitches.



My card is put together with a range of papers that are all digital, and the cute little Tilda image is from the new collection for Spring. I have made the image up of several layers to give depth. The flowers on the front of the card are also coloured and printed, and then use a ball tool to give the shape and depth. I have machine stitched all the different layers, including the inside. The image is coloured with Copics.



The inside of the card follows the same colours and papers and on the left hand side there is a pocket on the bottom half, that you can slip a separate note, or a voucher into, behind the tree. I have made a box envelope to match as usual, to take the height and size of the card.



Would love your comments if you stop by xxx
