Good Morning everyone. Jocelyn has chosen an unusual theme for this challenge and I think the team have had great fun producing some inspiration for you all. Please pop round to visit them all - I know they would be pleased to see you.
Do you know that feeling you get when you have made something that you really like and it all seems just right? It is a rare feeling I know but I did feel that about this card. Any sentiment on the front would spoil it I think so it will have to go on the insert when I use it - if I use it?
I knew I had a stitch pattern I wanted to use but how to incorporate something from a CD? - so I went looking for a special background. I found what I wanted on Funky Hands. I love their papers and it is such a shame that they are no more.
So I printed out the background and matched the colours with my threads and here is my offering:
This pattern is from Stitching Cards and is called 'Chili Peppers' and the background paper is from Funky Hands - Happy Happy Birthday - CD - folder 'Cake Anyone?' which I stuck to the front of a 7 x 7 white card.
I cut some very thin strips in red from the backing paper to place over the corners and added some red gems to the strips and the topper.
Thank you for popping in to see what I have done and any comments are gratefully received and avidly read.
