CD Sunday - 'Sparkle and Shine' - chosen by Wynn

With Christmas looming so large we at CD Sunday are continuing with our Christmas themes and 'Sparkle and Shine' should be a good one for you all to enter.

I have done a stitched card for this theme and I bought the pattern on line from Cardmaking Online in Australia and the very talented designer is Emelie.

Here it is:

The CD content is the backing paper from La Pashe 'Big One Backing Papers'. The colours were perfect.  The stitch pattern is very very fine and took quite a while but I really like the finished effect.  I have added some red chalk to the bow to give it some depth and shading and sewed very tiny glittery seed beads inside the green stitching and on the little red stars.  The Merry Christmas is a glittered peel off.   I can't remember who made the die I used for the bows.

Please visit CD Sunday - not only to see the cards for this challenge but to see the winner and runner-up  of the Sharon Duncan Sponsored Challenge - 'Paws' .  Thank you again to all those who enter our challenges.

I look forward to seeing all the 'Sparkle and Shine'.  See you soon.

  6. A fabulous card Carol, great stitching and lovely traditional red and green.

  7. Love the traditional colours Carol, the tiny beads must have taken ages to sew on but they add lots of sparkle and shine, a very special card

  8. Carol what a lot of patience you must have....all those seed beads stitched on to your design. It's a beautiful card and will be treasured by whoever is lucky enough to recceive it. Hugs Wynn x
