Stitch It Up & Our Weekly Spotlight Top 3

Hi and Good Morning everyone, Alison here today.  I wanted to say thanks so much for sharing your gorgeous creations with us last week.  Anything Goes is always such a fabulous challenge as you get to see some wonderful,  inspirational projects.  This week the DT loved seeing in order of entry:

Well done ladies!  It was a real pleasure visiting your blogs and seeing your beautiful creations!  Please contact us for your Weekly Spotlight Badge to display on your blog.

So our new challenge this week is to use stitching (real or faux) somewhere on your project.  Stitching is probably my favourite thing to add to cards as it makes it feel really personal and always looks like it took ages to make.  ;) 

I started off with a 6 x 6 inch blank card base and stitched First Edition papers to brown bazzil cardstock.  I cut the gorgeous Fanciful Flourish in brown card and stuck to the pink paper panel tucked behind the main image.  The beautiful border is the Celtic Weave die with the Queen Anne's Lace at the bottom.  The fabulous doily is from the new releases and is called Pinwheel - this is a stunning die and cuts brilliantly! :)

I added some mini dimensional butterflies for a bit of flutter and a wooden flower and button from my stash.

All dies used on this card are:

You still have lots of time to enter the challenge this week, and dont forget there is always wonderful daily inspiration from the rest of the DT over on our Cheery Lynn Designs Inspiration blog.

Have a smashing week everyone and thanks so much for visiting today.
