CRAFTY INDIVIDUAL CHALLENGE "FESTIVE SPARKLE"

Hi  Everyone,

I have made a card for the Challenge over at Crafty Individuals the Theme is Festive Sparkle.... I used this fabulous stamp CI-110 I think this image is lovely... She was stamped on muslin cloth which in turn was stitched on to some thin burlap... you can't see the machine stitches...in the photo but they are there... the card stock around the image is from Graphic 45 Christmas Emporium collection The small words around the image read... The Child is Christmas..... The reindeer is from Tim Holtz, The flowers & leaves are from my stash..The whole card is mounted on some corrugated white card... edged with some white acrylic paint and chunky white fran-tage..





Thank you all so much for your visit today... Keep Warm.. Hugs May x x x

I will enter this card in http://craftyindividualsblog.blogspot.co.uk/

Oh May, this is absolutely beautiful! Wonderful stamp, gorgeous on the muslin; I adore the earthy neutrals, and then those pops of rich red, and the snow and the sparkle is lovely - and the musical deer of course goes straight to my happy spot! I think this is a new favourite for me...

I love the way you stamped the image onto the muslin to create such interest with the use of textiles.
