Daring Cards!

Or more like Daring Cardmakers. This week's challenge was to create a card with frills on. First, I have to say I found this quite hard. The various things I thought I'd do didn't pan out for a whole bunch of reasons (couldn't get the stitching to sit right, couldn't find the lace I'm sure I have in my stash etc) so eventually I settled for this scalloped panel (hope it counts - it's kinda frilly!)
The notecard & rubber stamp are by A Muse & the greeting is computer journalled on to sticky vellum.

I did want to share this second card with you though. Sarah made this card for the same challenge & wasn't entirely happy with it. I posted a comment saying how much I liked it - so she sent it to me. How lovely of her is that? Sarah's card is now proudly displayed in my shop & the picture really doesn't do it justice. All the papers are machine stitched with red thread as is the ribbon. Absolutely gorgeous!
