Here is the card I made for the Ismaki Challenge. Took me three days to finish - I start and them leave off, I start again and then leave off again and again. Quite pleased with the results and love the colours. Not sure if there is still something missing - maybe the "best wishes" panel?
I took the photo using the make-shift, home-made "mini photo studio" of which I will show some pics later on. Its definitely nothing special but it works.
Lilac cardstock
Tim Coffey Designer Pads
Silver Sentiments Peel-Offs
Nap Time - Penny Black Stamp
Water Colours
Black Thread and Needle
Silver Gems
Big Shot Die cutting machine
Decorative Accents
How to:
  1. Cut a panel from lilac card and stick a green cross hatched patterned paper on top.
  2. Stamp the image and fill in. Attach to a slightly larger green panel and an even larger scalloped lilac one. Assemble using double sided tape.
  3. Cut two small panels. Stick the sentiment on one and the gems on the other.
  4. Pierce the holes and stitch using black thread.
  5. Die cut the swirl and assemble everything as shown.
