These are a few of my favourite things!

Don't faint I've actually completed a dare challenge! This weeks little extra on DCM blog was right up my street;

What you need to do is use one of Mel's favourite things on your card (embroidery cotton/thread, buttons, felt or fabric) and combine it with one of your favourite things.


Not really difficult as it seems that my favourite things are identical to Mels! So I have machine stitched using thread for Mel's favourite item, done a bit of hand stitching and for my favourite thing I have added ribbon. I seem to want to distresss the edges of everything at the mo - not sure I haven't overdone it a bit on this card though :oS

Love the hand stitching - not a strength of mine unfortunately but love the efforts of those who can! And just the right amount of distressing.
