Sowing the Seeds...

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

A quick post this morning as I am off to Kath's for a crafting sessions. Today will be about making flowers and she is going to teach me how to use a sewing machine... This should be fun as many people have tried, this time I am determined to get to grips with sewing.  Poor Kath ;)

Today's card is a male card, with Father's day on the horizon this is my last one for this year.


Recipe

1. 6 x 6 cream square card.
2. Using the Element sheet from The Collectors Edition, Mens NSR I matted and layered onto base card.
3. The topper I printed off twice and decoupage.
4. I used a small white tag and distressed with gold ink then using Spica Pen wrote the sentiment and added Baker's Twine.
5. To finish off I added the watering can charm and the Scrabble Tiles "Sow" from DoCrafts.


 Thank you for stopping by Today
Hugs xxxxx

The repetition of the stripes in two sizes is really effective and creates a lovely background for this striking image. Great embellies! Thank you for joining our Father's Day/For the Boys Challenge at Craft Your Passion this week. I hope we see you again soon.
