Make a Card at Fashionable Stamping CH 59

Hello dear crafters in blogland hope all is well with you :)
the lovely ladies over at Fashionable Stamping have set a new challenge
 and we are asked to make a card. Now I don't do cards very often
but having looked at the inspirational cards from the DT I felt like having a go.  
I have torn and lightly sanded some brown coordination card
and did faux stitches round the edge
torn a smaller piece of paper and stamped it with text and a swirl in sepia
then machine stitched onto the brown card
the words have been stamped onto tissue paper then stuck on
the decorative tag has had the edges dipped into gold embossing powder and heated
stamped with a floral swirl and hi-lighted with white pen
I have finished off with wrapping black twine
and adding flowers, text butterflies and a heart.
I shall use it as a just note card :)
Thank you for stopping by my blog and for taking time to comment
 it is very much appreciated and I do try to visit you back and enjoy looking at your work.
Enjoy your crafting
Hugs Sandra XXX 
PS I just saw that I have won on the random generator on the Fashionable Challenge blog :)  for the masks and stencils challenge. How lovely. Thank you ladies.
I recently attended a workshop at my local quilting store
The workshop was run by a very talented mixed media artist Alexander Waylett
We worked with burnishing copper and gold leaf onto cotton velvet
I made this piece It should look better when I frame it, I hope LOL
but I really did enjoy the day.
Thanks for looking
Hugs Sandra xXX
