Home Sweet Home

Good evening, I hope everyone has had a lovely weekend, the weather has been kind to us in Hampshire.  It was Andover Carnival today and the boys are all up at the live music event leaving me to get some crafting done.

This is a card I made for some very good friends of ours who have just moved house.  I used a lovely Willow Designs image from the Double Sprinkles of Kraft CD, I reach for this CD again and again it's good for so many different cards.  The backing papers are from another of my favourite CD's - Bearly Mine Designs.

I got my sewing machine out and stitched around the edges, it's the first time I've ever tried this and it's not as easy as I thought it would be -  I'm quite pleased with the results though.  A few die cut butterflies with some gems and a sentiment finish what is quite a simple card, your really don't need many embellishments with such a lovely image.

I decorated this inside of the card to complement the front.

Image and Sentiment:  Double Sprinkles of Kraft
Papers:  Bearly Mine Designs Designer Extreme CD
Tools:  Die-namics Butterflies
Embellishments:  gems from stash

There is a sketch challenge going on over at the Willow Sketchie Challenge blog at the moment, why don't you pop over and have a look you could win a lovely prize.
