A little bit of stitching

    For the new challenge beginning today at Crafty Cardmakers you are asked to show some stitching whether it be faux or real.
   I matted paper printer using volume 2 of Redoute's 'Les Belles Fleurs' CD ROM onto pink core'dinations cardstock and white card. I matted a strip of another design printed using the same CD ROM onto core'dinations cardstock and attached this across the top of my card.
   The cross stitch design is taken from a very old Cross Stitcher magazine and I attached it to the inside of a small aperture card. I then attached black bendable peel off around the aperture and a black peel off sentiment beneath it after which I attached the mini card to the front of my main card.

  To the inside of the mini card I attached another sentiment cut from the pink core'dinations cardstock using the Tattered Lace ornamental best wishes die.

  I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
   My Crafting Stories - flowers
   Crafty Friends - in the garden
   Crafting Musketeers - summer
   In The Pink - happy anything
   Inspiration Destination - anything goes
   C.R.A.F.T. - birthday
   Simon Says Stamp Wednesday - flowers
   A Gem of a Challenge - flowers
   Through The Purple Haze - anything goes
   Eclectic Ellapu - anything goes
