Amazing Love

I won this image & sentiment from Crafting With Deedee's Digis. Beautiful isn't it? It's called "Amazing Love." I wanted to do some stitching on my card... Everybody does it but me. :(  But I managed to control myself. I was pretty sure it would be a disaster! Instead, I used my paper piercer & a white gel pen. I think it worked! Stitching just makes it look more finished, don't you think? I used some gold Puff Paint in the center of the flowers & some Crystal Effects on the Cross.
I am entering my card @

  2. Wow what a great card, love the "stitching" and don't worry you are not the only, I have not tried yet, but this works for me. Love the puff paint and crystal effects on the cross. Thanks for joining us at Happy Monday Challenge.

  3. Well done on the faux stitching! It does look really effective....

    ..... now, as you used the paper piercer, next time you can thread your needle through it too - its so easy :) lol.

    This is a gorgeous card, I love the blooms, they look stunning, the ribbon is really special too. I clicked the pic to enlarge it to see the sentiment and details, and the glaze on the cross really stands out too.

    Brilliant :)
