Sew Pretty


I have been itching to play with my new Avery Elle sewing themed stamps and dies.  I used to do a lot of sewing but don't have the time now - this way I can get the look in minutes!

I stamped the sentiment on cream cardstock and die cut the embroidery hoop out of wood effect paper.  The flowers are watercoloured and I added a few 'stitch' stamps around the hoop.  The stitched border stamp is from Inky Doodles.

I will link up at CASology where the theme is 'Pretty' and at Addicted to Stamps and More where Anything Goes.

I need to get back to Christmas card making but it was nice to make a non-festive card for a change!

Thanks for stopping by,
