Hello everyone, hope you are enjoying your Sunday. It's back to grey and dismal as I write this and, I have to say, I'm not fond of Sundays, especially when Hubby has to work :0(
Anyhow, I have kept myself busy and made this shadow card to share with you, inspired by some current challenges out there. Hope you like it.
I found the instructions to make the shadow card in a magazine and
adapted it a little to suit the size of my available cardstock. I used my MS Cherish punch to cut the edges AND got out the old needle and embroidery floss and stitched it too!! I thought I would focus on a sentiment today rather than an image and found the sentiment as part of a Woodware set. This was stamped onto the back piece of card (although it doesn't look like it in the picture). The corner stamp is from Clarity and doesn't get used nearly enough!! Lavish branch had a long overdue airing and just in case you were wondering, the papers are the super duper Parisienne Blue which I bought on my recent trip to The Range.
I had a flash of creativity and made the flower with some ribbon that came in a value bag from Crafty Ribbons. I simple cut a 6" length, stitched a row of running stitch and pulled to gather and then neatened the edges.
the inspiration came from these challenges
