Planting Some Love

Good Afternoon

My Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors.

Hope everything is going well for you all?

Welcome back for another challenge over at

 Dream Valley 

The challenge runs every fortnight , posted every other Monday.

The theme for this fortnight's challenge is 

     Stitching Real Or Faux                    

    and we are sponsored this fortnight by

The ladies on the design team have been working
hard and have created some  fabulous cards
for inspiration, well worth a peep.

I have used one of my own images  for this challenge 
 from Elizabeth Bell named Planting Some Love


      1.  Using fancy card from my stash, I made Faux stitching
by using black marker pen.

 2.  With S/B dies Grand Labels Four I cut three labels

from blue,pink and white card. They were then
embossed using X cut embossing folder
Dandelion Seeds.  Again using black marker
pen I created the Faux Stitching.

3. The image was printed onto the white card and
 then coloured with Copic Markers.

4. Before adhering the layers to the card I adhered
a doily, then using foam tape layered up
each layer.  To the image card I attached
a piece of lace.

To complete the card I added a bow and heart gem
to the bow centre and pink gems at the edges.

Hope you will join us over at Dream Valley and
looking forward to seeing your creations.

Until Next Time
As Always
Take card and Happy Crafting
