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
