♥ Pretty Patchwork!

Ok...own up!! Who pinched the last few days??!! I can't believe it's Friday again!!
I must confess that some of yesterday afternoon and evening was spent 'playing' with all the wonderful goodies that I won in Tina's blog candy...but I've no idea where the rest went! :)
Tina also sent me an absolutely stunning card that she'd made...and inside were some 'gorgeous/gorjuss' stamped images! :) It really made my day...well, week actually, so once again...Thank you Tina xx
The card that Tina sent, inspired me to get my sewing machine out! Something that I've been promising myself to do for errrmmm...months now!! Whilst I think I need a few hours of practising straight lines...I am quite pleased with the result so far! :0) This week over at Daring Cardmakers the challenge is to make a card inspired by 'Patchwork'. Now I'm not totally sure that this will be allowed but... I did think that the background paper sort of resembled patchwork...and plus my new found love of stitching helped with the look too!
This card also fits with the challenge at Charisma Cards this week (I hope!!) ...of 'Pretty Cards/Pretty Cards for Mum'Papers - Funky Fairy's papercrafts - Feeling Fruity
Stamped Image - Sugar Nellie - Leanne Ellis design (from Tina)
Bead Pin - Made by Tina
Embellishments - from stash
Ribbon - saved from a bouquet of flowers from a friend
Coloured - Promarkers
