Stitches and Lace.


Challenge 75 at Crafty Cardmakers and our theme is Stitching and Lace, hosted by Lyn.




Our sponsors for this challenge is Hobby Craft , , there are some gorgeous stamps for our winner this time.
 Please pop over for all the details and see what we have all been making.



I chose to make an Easel card, using Graphics45 papers for the the base and the die cut shape.
This shape of card was not easy  photograph.
Two layers of material came next , joined together with a simple running stitch.
The  machine embroidered flower for the centre and  on the step  were  just glued in place.
Lace is one of my favourite things to add , where to put the bow took the most time when making this card ,
Not sure even now that its in the right place.


Thank you for stopping by to take a look, I always appreciate your comments.

  18. Yvonne, what a gorgeous vintage inspired piece. Love the fabric centre, and the whole thing has a lovely soft gentle feel to it.

    Sorry I haven't been around the blogs lately, but hopefully I should now have more time as I am finally settled into my new home.
