Good morning all and thank you for stopping by. What happened to the lovely weather although it is not cold it has been overcast with a shower or two each day for days now, please give us back our sunshine.
It's Thursday and that means it's time for another Crafty Sentiments Designs Challenge and this week we are challenging you to 'Add Stitching' to your projects. Now this doesn't have to be real stitching it can of course be faux, I however did dust off the sewing machine but as you can see I am not great with it, I will have to stick to papers definitely wouldn't fancy a new dress with those wiggly lines lol.
I went with two colours I wouldn't normally put together but having seen the cerise butterfly I thought they would be a good match for the image, plus I have had this paper for ages in my stash and I just never found a use for it (these were those papers that just kept getting moved around, so time to out them!). I decided to leave the flowers white like daisy's but added glossy accents over them to give a lovely sheen look. I didn't add a sentiment as the paper says it all.
