For my sister
My sister's birthday is on Good Friday this year and so I'm way ahead thanks to the challenges I'm entering this for.
First, A Day for Daisies. Their challenge is 'Dress it up with Gingham' and I used the freebie chicks they provided and combined it with the little girl from their March club kit.
The colour combination came from Daring Cardmakers - Caramel, Pale Lemon, Duck egg and a touch of gold.
For the finishing touch, I went to The Paper Variety - Tic Tac Toe. I was already sorted for the first two - Create a card and Spring theme. So I chose to add 'include stitching'. Oh my !!! That scrap of paper was much bigger when I first put it in my sewing machine. The top thread kept pinging out, leaving me with empty holes and I had to keep trimming the paper and starting again!
