I've been wanting to try stitching on a card with my sewing machine. This makes me want to pull it out and see what I can do. Beautiful Card!

disneylisa said...

Such an eclectic feel. I'm always so impressed when I see items like this partly because its a style I just can't do myself.

Bev said...

Beautiful work. I really like the background color scheme. I had to read the instruction list twice. I didn't realize you had used cheesecloth. This is also another use of stitching. I can't find a way to follow you. If there is and I've missed it please let me know. Thank you.

Anne Temple said...

This is so beautiful! Love the cheesecloth peeking out. So glad you shared it with us for the Scrapy Land Challenge.
