Dies R Us Challenge #41

I saw the challenge over at Dies R Us #41; stitching, and had to play.

You could use faux or real stitiching.  I went real and used my gold thread.  I do have to say sewing by hand is really relaxing [but time consuming].  However, I think the final effect was worth my time.  I used Avery Elle Brushed for the sentiment, and a really, really old Stampin Up background stamp, Victorian Lace.



Thanks for stopping by~

Love the background stamp and the color you used and I love the sequins in the shaker. Shaker cards are one of my favorites right now. I know the person who gets it will be delighted.

Love this, Vicki! It caught my eye right away so had to come for a closer look. So pretty with the damask background and blue sequins in the shaker. Love the gold embossed sentiment, too. A very special card! So good to see it in our Stitching Challenge at Dies R Us!
