It’s your day enjoy it…

I have a card to share today using a sweet lotv image and a fabulous sketch created by Dawny over at the Lili of the valley challenge blog

2011_02_12_1506I am not too sure about the colours of this card, ..mmmmm…
My sewing machine is starting to play up and is jumping stitches… grrrrr. think that i will have to dismantle it and clean it out.. though i think that it isn’t doing too bad as i have had it 12 years now.. lol.. may need to invest in a new one.. or maybe i should just get this one serviced..
The papers used on this card are from a glitter paper pad from imaginisce called all kinds of happy.
Tim holtz ticket raffia lace and organza ribbon, button and brads from my stash.

2011_02_12_1507inside as usual has been decorated to compliment the front.

Debbie said...

This is stunning...I love the colors, have both the image and that paper, and nothing I could have done would have produced such a beauty as this.

as for your sewing machine.. Maybe some of the sparkles got inside, so try cleaning it out. Mine is still under the chair collecting dust. Haven't tried sewing on a card yet. Soon, especially since I have next week off, always loved how it looked


Marina said...

Your card is beautiful Rach!
I love that image and the colours and papers you've used.


Marie-Anne said...

What a gorgeous card!

Cleaning your sewing machine probably will help. If not a service will help, I'm sure of that. My mom have had hers for over 20 years, she cleaned it regulary and it didn't need much service because of it.
