Homespun Card


Just popping in to wish you a Happy New Year!  I hope you have been enjoying the festive celebrations and are looking forward to a fabulous 2016 ahead :)

I have made a card to play along with Less Is More's homespun theme:


I used a new background from My Favourite Things to create the look of fabric on cream cardstock and some stitched stamps to create the border.  The flowers and cross stitches are from a set by Lil Inkers and I watercoloured them using my Zig Watercolours.  I have inked around the edge to emphasise the vintage, homespun look.

I hope you like my last card of 2015!

Thanks, as always, for stopping by and your kind comments - they make my day :)

  7. I'm sorry that I'm so late in commenting but having various visitors over the holiday period made me rather behind!
    This has such a nostalgic feel Sarah, I love the stitching and it's perfect for our homespun challenge!
