Evening All!
I've got another christmas card made :) I made this to follow the everybody art challenge where they have a sketch and iv just realised i haven't strictly followed the sketch so i realise i wont be qualifiying for the prize lol
The other challenge im entering this card into is simon says stamp which has a theme of stitching:) i really like the effect of stitching now i have got the hand of my sewing machine, its had more use this last month than it has the last 3 years lol
I also finally tried out my new bow maker which i bought from the Harrogate show of a stall called craft Racks for just £1.99 and it works like a dream :)
Heres the sketch i kind of followed lol

Basic Grey Wassail papers
