A little Shabby Card.

Hello All
Over at House of Cards this month, we have a Sketch Challenge, and this week it is the turn of the Shabby/Vintage Girls to show you their inspirational pieces and this one is mine.

This is the Sketch.

 The Cross design, makes for an interesting take,  I chose to make a square card and stitched the cross.
The Bg is printed paper from Eclectic Anthology, my centre panel consists of some scraps that were on my craft table, it is not always I can make use of these little treasures, I keep them in a plastic container for weeks until it becomes too full and I have to trash them and start all over again; I need the space! 

 
 Prima Flowers complete this design, along with the inked up ribbon and computer generated sentiment.

I would like to enter this card into: UnstampaBelles Challenge-"Stitching"

The House of Cards October Challenge is here we would love you to play along with us.
Everyone is welcome.
 
Have a good week
Smiles:)
Sue

Oh how beautiful! Love how you used the sketch, Sue, with your perfect stitching & so neat these wonderful left-overs didn't get thrown out!

Beautiful stitching on this! It's hard for me to think of your work as just a card...each piece is an amazing work of art worthy of framing!

Love the stitching in the background. Great use of your scraps. Thanks for sharing at Unstampabelles.

The stitching seals the deal and that font for your sentiment is wonderful!! I love thinking how much fun it would be to go through your trinket bag of goodies and see what you've created. The bouquet is so beautiful with the hat pin and greenery.
I really love seeing what you've been up to. I'm smiling from ear to ear.
hugs,
Quirks
