I'm not the brightest bulb in the box ,it took me a while to get it almost right . I originally did a row of a stitching down either side but that's something else I'm not very good at so I stuck the white border on instead . This card is based on Merry's creation which I really liked.

My aim this year was to use my stash for card making . Over a 10 year period I have bought ,won and been given all manner of ribbons ,stickers ,stamps ,paper all of which takes up space . I started this card with a scrap of peach coloured paper and some brown ink . The leaves are from Starform Stickers and are stitched with gold thread , the side boarder is on the same sheet. A sticker sentiment covered by a transparent sticker frame completes my card.
