CD Sunday - 'Say it with flowers' - chosen by Pamela

Teamie Pamela has chosen a challenge that has plenty of scope and I hope you will enjoy joining in with us.
I decided to combine stitching with die cutting:

I discovered that I had - at sometime - purchased a  batch of stitch patterns that included an old fashioned gramophone playing musical flowers and I also had a die of a similar gramophone so then I just needed something from a CD to put it all together. I found a suitable music backing paper on a
La Pashe CD - The Best Of 2012.
Thank you by the way to those who entered my 'Sketch' challenge.  I think I might like to design another sometime in the future.

(On a personal note I have had the steroid injection for the Carpal Tunnel Syndrome in my right wrist and so far all seems well so I am hoping to be back to 'proper' crafting asap.  And for anyone who may have to have this 'jab' in the future it wasn't nearly as bad as I had imagined it might be. My GP did it.)


  1. A very clever design Carol - perfect for my theme.

  3. So glad that the injection went well, hope you notice an improvement and have less discomfort soon, love the stitched panel and the die cut.

  4. A very beautiful card Carol, I enjoy paper embroidery but it takes such a lot of time to do. Love how you've used the gramophone die and musical backing paper to tie it all together.

    Pleased to hear your injection went well.

  5. A lovely combination of die cutting and stitching, beautiful card.
    Glad the injection wasn't too bad

  6. Gorgeous stitching as always, I love the card and your gramophone die and the stitching ine brings back the old fashion feel to the card.
    So glad the injection is working, long may it work.
