Loving Challenges...

I'm using this card for TWO great challenges: a fun one day Caardvarks challenge to use beads on a card front, and a Wednesday Stamper Challenge , to use stitching to create art.

For this 6 X 6" card, I used a Marianne Design brass template, embossed with a light box on pearlescent cardstock, then stitched and added seed beads. Then I cut a circle out of the centre with my Creative Memories Circle Cutter (BEST system on the market!) , and inserted this little girl, which is a Stampsmith stamp on glossy cardstock, stamped with Ancient Page black ink. Other cards and things can be seen on my blog here. THANK YOU for dropping by!

Oh, my. That CM cutting system must be wonderful for you to have used it to cut a hole after doing all that wonderful artwork on this card. Fabulous! TFS. Daria
