What a fabulous day yesterday - I was up with the lark to see the lot from start to finish. You know - THE WEDDING. Catherine's dress was elegant, understated and just beautiful in its simplicity. Her sister looked stunning, and the little bridesmaids were sweet, as were the pages, and I liked that the flowers were very simple as well. Catherine looked so composed and William looked like the cat that had got the cream - which of course he had. We sure can put on a show when it comes to something like a royal wedding.
Enough of wittering - I had better tell you about the One Stop Craft Challenge today. Our theme today is In Stitches - and we want to see stitching, either faux or real. Our sponsors are Dianes Digital Designs.
My card has a background paper from the Tim Holtz Shabby stack, which I have overstamped with stamps from the Haberdashery set. I have added a panel of pink card whichhas been embossed with faux stitchings, underneath which is some cobwebby pink lace. .I have cut out the dressmakers stand from the Sewing Room die set, painted it with crackle paint and then wrapped it with brown and pink pleated ribbon. A brad and rhinestone spacer has been added to look like a brooch. At the bottom is a reel wrapped with lace and at the top a Tim Holtz letter tag. I have also added a few sparkly bits over the card.
Fine up to there. But oh - what was I thinking of! Why, oh why, did I put that pink flower there. I cannot get it off because it is stuck with Crafters Pick glue.!!
