Mo's Digital Pencil and Making it with Meslyn Challenge

 Sorry its a bit late this month, but here goes - the Making it with Meslyn Challenge theme for this month is 'Summer cocktail recipe - Ribbon / sentiment and a splash of citrus', so I decided to use a sentiment I like so much it lifts the spirits and the image from Mo's Digital Pencil which you can find here is just perfect for the sentiment too!

The papers I used were from Digichick, here, and there are some lovely muted papers on that website, I had to reign myself in......

took loads of photos of this card seeing as the light was good, so you can have a good look:)

a side on view so you can see the inside is similar to the outside

  1. I love this card so much Jess .. how did you do the stitching? It looks so well and really suits this project! Very professional and girly!

  2. Pauline I used a machine but you can stitch by hand if you use a pokey tool and a TH or other type of ruler to make holes first - the cameo card a couple of posts back was done this way, with a pokey tool and double thread (embroidery thread is lovely and shiny too is you use that) - just use straight or back stitch.

  3. Jess that is amazing :)
    I love all the detail you use on your cards :)

  4. Love the detail with the flowers Jess & the way the theme continues on the inside!!
