Sweet Elizabeth Bell

A change of style for this card. I wanted to try something a little different and I was really pleased that I did.

The background layer is kraft cardstock with little ants heat embossed with clear powder. I thought they fit with our little lady sitting on the stump. I've stitched around the kraft layer and the image and added the red cardstock to match her scarf. The brad in the flower is co-ordinated with the green circle piece of patterned paper. I made the crochet flower myself and the olive hydranga is from Bizzy Becs (see sidebar). I didn't have a sentiment to go with the image so I hand wrote one.

The blue checked paper is actually stamped!! I bought a Darkroom Door background stamp after seeing all of the fantastic work Debra James was doing with her's, but I couldn't get it to perform, then I asked Debra and she gave me some expert tips and look - how gorgeous is that? Expect to see a lot of plaid papers in my cards now....





The fantastic sketch is from The Sweet Stop challenge # 45. The Secret Crafter is also asking for Stitching for their challenge # 72, so I will enter this over there as well.
Thanks for stopping by and looking at my card!
