Little bit of Stitching.

Hi everyone.  Thanks for your Birthday wishes last week - kept it quiet didn't I :-)

Hope you have all had a fabulous creative week.

It's Friday and the start of a new challenge over at Polkadoodles.  Our challenge this week is Case It - we ask that you choose a  creation from 2014 and Case It, make sure you credit the original artist.

So it could be the colours, the design, layers, sketch.  You choose.

I decided to use a fabulous creation by Asha, you can check it our HERE.

And here is my take on the card.  I just had to use that pinwheel background.

I used the wonderful new release Work and Play 8 - Music.  This cool chick is on one of the pre-coloured design sheets.  I loved getting the little sewing machine out and adding the stitching.

All the elements of my card are from the CD.  I cut some little guitars with my Silhouette Cameo - to add to the card.  Aren't they cute :-)

For the inside, I added another pinwheel (which I didn't stitch) with a blank panel to leave a message, and couldn't resist adding another guitar.

Great for a music loving teen girl :-)

Now it's your turn.  Why not take a look through the fabulous creations and see what inspires you.

I am entering this card in the following challenges.
