Like-O-Meter for JAI & SSSC

Good morning! I had a little play last night and made a card for JAI's current challenge... Just Add Stitching! Faux stitching of course as the little el-cheapo sewing machine I bought to try sewing on my cards, remains in its box, never threaded! I've used the current SSSC #72 for the sketch layout. I really loved this stamp as soon as I saw it at SU Perth Regionals last year, and wouldn't you know it, this is the first time I've used it! Of course it has long since retired :)


and the lovely sketch from Karen over at The Sweetest Thing. I've reversed it to suit the stamp :)


Recipe:

Thankyou to the girls at Just Add Ink for choosing my humble card! I'm honoured and surpirised as there were some crackin' entries with REAL stitching! Head on over to JAI and check out all the talent!
