Stitches for OSCC

Hi everybody

Time for a new challenge at  One Stop Crafts  and this week we want to see Stitching - it can be real or faux.  I have used faux stitching.

All the stamps are B Line Designs, with the exception of the cross stitches, which is Tim Holtz.  My background has been done with Pan Pastels - must get some more colours!  The DP is from the So Sophie range which I have had for ever and hardly used, but I love the damask pattern on this and it seems to go really with the the vintagey feel of the stamps.  Flowers, lace and seam binding are all from stash.

I am entering this card for the following challenges:

Card Making Mamas - Something Old - My stamps are old
Digi Doodle's Shop Best - Anything Goes
Pan Pastels - Use Two of Something - I have two tape measures, two lots of faux stitching, and two carnation flowers
Moving Along With The Times - Blooming Marvellous
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Crafty Bloggers Network - Distressing
Creative Stamp Friends--Old fashioned or antique
The Crazy Challenge--vintage
Craft Your Days Away--distressing
Sugar Creek Hollow--go girly

Sponsoring us this week is Chocolate Baroque, who has become a regular sponsor for us, and we have a fabulous prize of a set of stamps worth a whopping £40.

I really appreciate it that you take the time to look at my blog and leave such lovely comments. Thank you each and every one of you.
