Just Magnolia & Sketch Saturday

Just Magnolia want us to practice our needlework this week whilst there is a lovely sketch for us to follow at Sketch Saturday so I decided to combine them both.

I ended up ordering cards the wrong size - 125cm instead of 145cm. Being too lazy to return them I decided to use them - Ohh why didn't I change them? - not a big difference in size until you start to use them.
Thankfully the sketch I was following adapted itself to a smaller card. Being in a brave mood I used a stitch on my machine I haven't used before and I must say I like it but will work closer to the edge next time. I used Paper Pizzaz cardstock and Basic Grey Infuse papers. Tilda is coloured with pastels and the sentiments are Personal Impressions.

Materials
Paper Pizzaz cardstock : Basic Grey Infuse papers : Magnolia's Tilda : Derwent pastels : Personal Impressions sentiments : Sewing Machine : Rest from stash

such a lovely card that yoi have created and I just love this sweet image. A good thing about the smaller sized card is that you you can use less of your beautiful papers! Fab stitching - thanks for joining us on Just Magnolia this week
