The Paper Players #78 and Card Patterns #148.....



Hi Everyone!

Today's card is a combination of two challenges -







At first I struggled a bit with the colour combination but now that my card's finished, I really like how these colours look together. I also decided to mirror image the sketch to better suit the bird.

Don't look too closely at the stitching LOL My three year old was sitting on my lap helping me sew. He told me it looked "really cool" when we were finished :) 


I love reading your comments! And remember, if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask!





I'll be back later with a supply list

Sandra, this is so pretty! Your shading on the flowers is gorgeous and the stitched accents really add so much extra detail to your card. I specially like that little pop of scallop trim. Thank you so much for joining us this week at the Paper Players! :)

Very pretty! I want to do this challenge and I'm having some trouble with the colors, too. Yours turned out so nice that I need to just get busy! (Your stitching looks fine!)
