Friend Card

A warm hello to everyone. Glad you are back for another weekly challenge at Cheery Lynn Designs. This weeks theme is "In Stitches". I started with the brown rose paper for the card base and machine stitched around the edges. I place the awesome Tiny Bubbles Border along the left hand side. I added another layer on top using the Celtic Chain. The Rum Punch Doily w Angel Wing was place as my focal point. I added some stitches around the inside of the doily with a marker. I cut the doily a second time in brown so I could have the center in brown. I then place a single flower from the Sweet William Strip so the center of the doily still showed as it is such a cool pattern. I added two flourishes using the Mini Fanciful Flourish. I cut two Lace Corner Deco J corners and added brown behind them to make them pop a bit. Some ribbon, a button and a metal sentiment with Friend on it gave it a nice touch. I stitched up the center of some of the ribbon using bakers twine. It was fun to use a combo of borders, doilies and corners not to mention flourishes and flowers. Hope you will come join our challenge for a chance to win a $20.00 store certificate at Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge. I would love to see some of your designs.
