Prickly friends!

Well here I am with one of the new release stamps from CRAFTY SENTIMENTS DESIGNS which will be available from 10th October. When I first looked at this stamp I just thought it would be perfect for a thinking of you card.
I kept the whole thing quite simple, using a kraft card for my background and a little hint of yellow to keep with an autumn feel. I stamped the letters and kept them quite rickety. I stamped a tiny dragonfly in each corner and finished with a bit of braiding. The image is coloured with promarkers and the clouds are made using chalk. I machine stitched round the image and added faux stitching to the kraft card.

I would like to enter this into
Anything Goes - animals
I Love ProMarkers - autumn colours
Fab n Funky - no patterned papers
Crafty Catz - autumn
Joanna Sheen - down in the garden
Stamptacular Sunday - photo inspiration
