Well you might remember from last week that I purchased a shiney new sewing machine, well I've been having a play and thought I would share this card I made for my sister's birthday (which was yesterday) so couldn't show it before today in case she was catching up on my blog - LOL!
I made my shabby flower from white tissue paper and decided I would cut leaf shapes out too and attached them to my card with my sewing machine - I so chuffed that it came out all right!!
I stretched the zigzag stitch around the outside edge of the kraft paper and added some flowers to the bottom corner to hide the (not so neat join!). And of course one of my cards wouldn't be fully complete without a bit of sparkle courtesy of these lovely swarovski crystals - although in the photo below they look positively dull (should have used my flash maybe)!!!!!
Anyway that is it! I'm enjoying using my sewing machine and once I get my craft room sorted out the machine will be upstairs with me rather than on the dining room table downstairs!
Thought that I would enter this card into the following challenges (and this is a lot for me!!!) :-
