INTAAS - Use stitching or beads

This theme was set by team member Tricia/Josephine over at International Art and Soul. Why not come along and join us with this fun theme?

My card blank is a 7.7. by Craft UK. The red card used for the mat is by Hobbycraft and the teal card is by Sue Wilson. I embossed the red card with a Crafter's Companion embossalicious folder of buttons. I added a strip of white lace, from Craft Box UK, across one corner and then fixed the image from a Joanna Sheen CD and matted on to teal card, across the left side. In the top corner I added a small diamante buckle, bought from a friend a few years ago. I filled it with teal coloured seed beads from Craft Box UK along with three of their larger teal beads.

I've added two images as the first is a photograph which isn't perfectly clear although the colours are spot on. The second is s scan and is slightly better although the colours are dark. Hmm.

I'm adding this card into the following challenges:

Allsorts - Feminine, For a Lady
Crafts Galore - Anything Goes
Creative Sketchy Girls - Ribbon, Twine or Lace
Crafty Creations - Anything Goes
Lemon Shortbread - Anything Goes

Thank you all for visiting, I hope you have a good day.

Thank you all

INTAAS - Red, White and Blue

Come along to International Art and Soul and join in with DT member Christine's choice of challenge theme 'Red, White and Blue'.

I thought I'd be very patriotic at this time and use our national flag with two wonderful British landmarks and a guard.

My card blank is a 7x7 by Craft UK. I used a mat of dark blue card with a vertical red card strip, both by Hobbycraft. In the bottom section of the card I fixed the flag image with Tower Bridge and the Royal Naval College at Greenwich and a Horse Guard from the Household Cavalry Regiment alongside. I bought these as 'scraps' many years ago and had never used any of them. 

I'll probably send this as a birthday card to my great nephew on his birthday.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:

Crafts Galore - Anything Goes
DLART - Red, White and Blue
Crafty Creations - Anything Goes
Crafty Gals Corner - One for the Boys
Creative Moments- Anything Goes
Lemon Shortbread - Anything Goes
