Come Fly With Me


Going to enter this into the Paper Play Challenge – Parlez Vous – (use any other language apart from English) and also Lili of the Valley Challenge Blog.

Woops changed the title of my card because I am going to enter it into the Penny Black Saturday Challenge – Week 74 the criteria was to base your entry this week around a favourite Song Title or lyrics. Picked a famous song from Frank Sinatra. Wish I had put a musical note coming out of the little birds mouth… too late now.

Loved this paper, another download from Designer Digitals called Grungy Christmas.

Stitched edges with a holly stitch and then scratched both paper and stitches with a very fine sanding block. It actually made the stitches go very fussy which toned in well with the card.

Inked with various distressed inks and also stamped the Penny Black – Partridge in a Pear Tree – images with StazOn Saddle Brown.

Coloured images with Copics and added red Liquid Pearls. Red ribbon from stash.

Loved the overall effect and some lucky member of my family will be getting this for Christmas.
