Little Miss Muffet Appreciation day

After I won a place in the spotlight on the Little Miss Muffet challenge blog I was asked to take part in the Appreciation day. This is an honor I could not pass by. My choice fell on the gorgeous Bazabit image from Little Miss Muffet and I started to make a stitched card with it.


The stitching pattern is from Ann's PaperArt and the die I used is from Marianne Design.
After I finished my first card I also wanted to try something different, without stitching, and the next card came out of that.


This time I used the die pressabilities circles.

Have a look at all the beautiful cards  that were made with the lovely new images at the Little Miss Muffet challenge blog

This fortnight challenge is Use dies and/or punches

This time we do not have a sponsor, the challenge is "just for fun". The advantage was that we as design team could use whatever we want. A great opportunity to this time not use a digital image.

The card I made is for a 50th wedding anniversary, so of course I had to use gold.


The die I used to make the background is from Cheery Lynn.
