I'm starting the New Year as I mean to go on, or at least that's my hope anyway.
I've been trying to get a little more organised when checking out my favourite challenges, so I've been writing copious lists and printing pictures of sketches that I want to use. I'm sure that it can't last...........but at least for the moment let's give it a go.
This is the card that I made for the first challenge of 2013 over at Our Creative Corner where they are looking for Aqua and Pink plus Flowers.
Floral Thread 40-135 which has been stamped and embossed using Versamark and White Embossing powder.
The zig-zag stitching has also been stamped and embossed in white using a clear stamp that I have. Sorry not sure who makes it.
The sentiment is from a Woodware clear stamp set designed by Jane Gill, and has been cut out with one of my trusty Circular Nesties and mounted onto an Aqua coloured Scalloped Circle.
I got the idea for the gauze from the lovely Sara when she brought some of her fantastic samples into SirStampalot when I was staying there in November.
I had to laugh when the assistant asked if I wanted Sterile Gauze!!
I hadn't got the heart to tell her I wanted it to adorn a greetings card not a cut knee, I'm not sure that she would have understood.
The trouble is that I can see me being very late to bed now if I am going to get any playtime in at all.
Better press publish, I have a card to finish!!
