You brighten my life

Good afternoon, it's time for a new challenge at Crafting for all Seasons and our theme this fortnight is 'STITCHING REAL OR FAUX'.

This week we have three fab sponsors:


I spent ages browsing their shops, but there were so many gorgeous images I just couldn't make up my mind which one to choose, so I decided to use one of my own.

This is my card:

I have kept it really simple again, I'm really getting into this style of card at the moment.  I used one of my Joanna Sheens's Wordy Stamps and added my hand stitching to the sun's rays.  For the top half of the background I embossed some lines onto a piece of linen card that I had in my stash and the bottom is some Papermania paper.  Full details of everything I have used are listed below.

This is the inside of my card that has been decorated to complement the front:


Image:  Joanna Sheen - Words One
Papers:   Docrafts - Papermania Lemon Sorbet Capsule Collection
Card Stock:  Crafter's Companion - Core'dinations, Create and Craft - Linen
Tools:  Spellbinders - Pinking Circle and Classic Circle
Embellishments:  ribbon from stash

I would like to enter this card in to the following challenges:
Make sure you pop over to the Crafting for all Seasons Challenge Blog and check out the DT inspiration, we would love for you to join us for our 'STITCHING REAL OR FAUX' challenge.

Thank you for calling this afternoon, please come back and visit again soon.
