A birthday card

Another stitched card

J'ai tellement aimé faire la carte brodée (voir message précédent) que j'ai récidivé... Le modèle est disponible ici. J'ai utilisé le sketch de Little Miss Muffet.

I told you that my previous stitched card was not going to be the last one! The pattern I used can be found here. I followed the sketch from Little Miss Muffet for the finished card. Once again a big thanks to Make it Crafty for the chipboard embellishments that I won on their advent calendar.

Something a bit different...

C'est rare, mais ça arrive : pas de tampon sur ma carte... J'ai réalisé cette carte brodée en utilisant un pattern gratuit trouvé ici, que j'ai juste très légèrement simplifié.

It doesn't happen very often but I let down my promarkers and made a card with no stamp... The  free pricking pattern for this stitched card can be found here, I just simplified it a little bit. It will certainly not be the last stitched card you see from me, because I really enjoyed making it.
I would like to enter my card in the following challenges : Bunny Zoe (anything goes), Papertake weekly (anything goes), Whimsy Stamps (fancy edges), Baffies Kreativladen (anything goes except Magnolia).

The Sketchy Challenge #40

Vous aimez cette carte? Vous pouvez l'obtenir!
Do you like this card? You can get it!

Pour cette carte, j'ai suivi le sketch de The Sketchy Challenge. L'image est un tampon Lili Of The Valley colorié aux promarkers. Le cadre est un chipboard de Make it Crafty que j'ai gagné lors de leur calendrier de l'avent, que j'ai peint à la peinture dorée. Les papiers sont de Basic Grey, collections Eva et Capella, et les fleurs et perles sont des Wild Orchid Crafts.

When I saw the sketch at The Sketchy Challenge, I knew immediately I had to do something with it... I have used a stamp from Lili Of The Valley colored with promarkers. The frame is a chipboard from Make it Crafty that I won during their advent calendar, I painted it with gold paint. The papers are from the Eva and Capella collections at Basic Grey. The flowers and pearls are Wild Orchid Crafts.
I would like to enter my card in the following challenges : Simon Says Stamp (anything goes), Crafty Ribbons (anything goes with ribbon), Lili's Little Fairies (anything but square), I love Promarkers (love is all around), Basic Grey (love is in the air), Bunny Zoe (anything goes), Stamp and Create (love) and The Ribbon Girl (Valentine), Natalie and Amy (something old and something new : the chipboard frame was brand new and the gold paint I used on it was more than 10 years old - I nearly could not open the paint tube but the paint inside was still good).
