Love is

I’m still on my stash ban and doing my best to be innovative! I used the great photo from The Shabby Tearoom challenge for inspiration.


I used the colours, the sewing theme and also the vintage feel by using papers which remind me of vintage wallpaper.

The digi is from the Paper Shelter and is called the cute dressmaker. I recycled brown card packaging for my mats. I used distress ink around the edges of the card and image.

I used up some left over embroidery thread and buttons cut off clothes to add to my sentiment.

The back lacy ribbon was from Sew Sweet and was from a win on the wonderful Top Tip Tuesday. The green ribbon is from stash.

The inside of the card uses a heart from Nit Wits Threads and Thimbles.

Thanks for reading! The other challenges I want to enter are
My Grafico Crafts- love and valentines
Incy Wincy Designs- vintage
Crafty Cardmakers- no floral embellishments
Cards for men- recycling
The pink elephant challenge- hearts (anywhere in the card so I hope inside counts!!)
Theres magic in the air- from the heart

    Beautiful card, love the colours too, liking your recycling and stash busting, wish I could be so restrained, just placed a joggles order and seen a notice that our local art school is having a garage sale Saturday morning, the temptation may be too great!
