I've made this card for two challenges - the Sarah Kay sketch challenge (great sketch BTW), and also the Papertake Weekly challenge which was A Stitch in Time.
I have been really nervous in the past about getting my sewing machine out for my cards, but when papertake weekly set this challenge, I thought it was time I braved it, and this is what I came up with! I watercoloured a sarah kay image, dug out some papers, K&Co and some others, and then followed the sketch, layering and stitching as I went. I really enjoyed trying a new stitch, and am really pleased with the results. I don't think the photo does it justice, and the greeting is a bit dodgy, but I wasn't sure what greeting to use. I didn't want to do just an ordinary happy birthday or whatever (like I ALWAYS do), so thought I'd try something different with my SU words stamp set.
Hope you like!!
