Choices, Choices

There was a cheeky wee post on Sketch Saturday today - where although there wasn't a new sketch to work from you could choose your favourite from previous weeks.

I chose sketch #9 and made this card using Pink Petticoat papers and image, a computer generated sentiment and a little bow from my stash. I thought this would be a quick make using scraps however, had the bright idea of stitching around the outside when the top thread came undone (which I didn't notice until the end) and so had to finish it off by hand. I decided that would be quicker than trying to re-thread the pesky mini sewing machine which requires you to have 20/20 vision and hands the size of a Lilliputian. Never mind the best laid plans and all that.

Thanks for looking!
