Friends Together......

Guest Designer at CASology...........

I was so delighted and thrilled to have won at CASology last week with this card...
As a result Melissa asked me if I would like to be a guest designer this week...
Absolutely.... I would love to ..........
This weeks cue card is Stitch....
This is my card......
I stamped the Friends Image and sentiment several times with the Misti 
to get the black as dark as I could get it.
I die cut the 'together' sentiment from white CS and inlaid it.
The Zig Zag Stitch line has been stamped and heat embossed in gold.
I finished off by die cutting the square with a Stitch Square die.
I tried several different ideas for the cue card,
after settling with the idea of 'Friends Stitched together through friendship' x

Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity of Guest Designing this week.
I look forward to admiring your creations in the gallery.
