DT Monday - Purple/Blue and Sewing!

Good morning my friends in the cyber world! Hope you are all fine, I am!! For the winner of my "Clean craft room Blog candy" please see the post below! Where you can also win a Surprise gift! Now on to today's DT Monday!



Now I will confess, I struggled, this is my second card because this combination was hard for me, maybe because I did not have many papers in purple but then I found this Darkroom Door paper with a tulip on it. I colored my Hanglars with blue and added a blue lace. I am sure you will do better, LOL! Good luck!




This week's challenge at Paper Cupcakes is SEWING, brought to us by Dru. You know, my sewing machine is broke, so sad because I love sewing on my cards. However you can use any kind of sewing, puuh! As you can see I hand stitched it with two different colors of waxed floss. For this challenge you have to use your FREE image, Just ducky, but hey isn't he the cutest?? And if you win you can choose a digital image in the PCC store!

Just a reminder!!! Now this week on the 11 August!

Love the way your stitching came out. I don't sew, not even on cards so this is always a challenge in itself. I fall back on my embroidery and cross stitching days. Lovely card.
