Ann's Paper Art  new 3D decoupage is so lovely the colours are really vibrant I love it.
 I sat and made this card this afternoon, I have stitched the free border pattern from Ann's stitching blog, the decoupage is 3D Decoupage Ann's Paper Art Colourful Pansies APA3D007 , I embossed the card with Tattered Lace Ditsy Dots embossing folder and cut it down to size, I then Die cut the bow with Creative Expressions Finishing Touches- Mosaic 3D Itty Bitty Bows and added some pearls to finish.

I had a lot of fun making this card, I have stitched Ann's Paper Art  3D Card Embroidery Sheet No 18, I decided to combine it with a Crafters Companion "vintage Decor" 6x6 Embossing Folder from the Vintage Floral Collection, I think it works really well with this pattern, the card can be used as a wedding card, anniversary card or an engagement card.

For My Sister

Today is my big sisters 60th Birthday, I made this card for her with Ann's Paper Art Stitching Pattern No a292, I had to make sure when I put the bubble wrap on to protect it I folded some tape over for her to be able to open it, my sister had an accident in December and has a badly broken arm and shoulder, so at the moment she only has one arm to use, I know how difficult it is when you can't use both your arms, you have to think very carefully about everything you do, even opening a bottle or cutting up your own dinner and getting yourself dressed is extremely difficult with one arm and can leave you in tears, it's going to be a very long healing process for her, so I hope my sister has a magical day today with her friends celebrating a new era in her life.

Friendship Card

This is the card I made for Frances, I have stitched a pattern from Hobbydol book No 138 by Chrissie.
