My post for today is my DT sample for My time to craft The theme is 'stitching', my base card is a dl which I haven't done in a long time. I started by using black card for my first layer, then used a backing paper to layer onto that. I then made a small matt of black card and layered it with a contrast paper. I used one of my dies to cut the shape and inked the edges, after stamping my image onto the same paper as one of my layers I mounted it onto my die shape. I added a sentiment, gems and card candi to finish.

Thank you for taking the time to view my blog, all comments are much appreciated.
