Style Queen


Soft shabby is my favourite style of card at the moment so I really enjoyed making this one. It uses Dawn's fab sketch from Papertake, the duck egg blue and rose from Colour Create and a retired TAC stamp that I haven't used in a while. It also includes some stitching which was the Colour Create "extra" although this is coincidental as I hadn't actually read that bit :) It takes longer to get the sewing machine out than it does to do the sewing! Not sure the photo really does it justice, I find it quite difficult to take photos of pale cards.
