Always and Forever

I have a card today to show you that uses the image Faith by Sugar Nellie, A sweet sweet friend of mine sent me this stamp along with a few others, thank you hun.. xx
I am joining in with the challenge over at the sugar bowl with this card, where they have a fabulous sketch to follow.
These stamp are so sweet,
and almost take you back into a by gone era,..  I have used some T!m Holtz papers.. lost and found for this card. I edged some with my machine stitching , i have used an embossing folder on one piece of cardstock but it has kind of gotten lost behind the layers.. lol.
the seam binding is part of the Candy that i won from Bev. thank you hun, it really came in handy for this card, but.. i am going to have to get myself some in this colour now.. lol..
The flower and self adhesive pearls are also a gift from a friend.. thank you Mandi.
button and twine are from my stash.. oh and i added some paper pearls to her hat and coat.
The inside of the card has been decorated to compliment the front.
This card also has it’s own handmade box.. (I’ll try and get a tutorial done on these boxes soon.. time willing)
Thank you for taking the time to visit me today. i really do appreciate it.

Hi Rach
love your card, this is so NOT a colour that I would use, BUT I love it.
I love these images (although I did find the stamps disappointing), so I have now ordered the digi-images, which are lovely, and I am VERY pleased with.
3 of them are so like 3 of my granddaughters that you would have thought that they had posed for the stamps lol, so I just HAD to buy them.
