I made this card just for funsies! I've pretty much realized that I don't do so well with most challenges. I just can't take the pressure. I get intimidated and my palms sweat.
Which is really rather silly, given I can face a nasty prosecutor at ten paces and not bat an eye.
SUPPLIES: Hero Arts stamps CL351, K5162, CG154; Ranger Distress & VersaFine inks; Martha Stewart ribbon (I just love that stuff Sue sent me!); Mark Richards pearls; Stickles; Ranger Dimensional pearls.
SPECIAL TOOLS: Sewing machine
This is gorgeous!!! Love your colours and all the gems - delightful! BTW, I find that I can do many things in my work life that would totally freak me out if I wasn't in my 'librarian/manager' disquise, Jo x

Love your color palette Deborah, and I saw the stitching straight away -but still had to read if you had actually stitched... Beautiful card!
