CD Sunday Challenge - In Stitches

The four papers for this card come from Kirsty Wiseman's Colour Burst of Fanciful Things. There are some beautifully co-ordinated sets of papers on her CDs. Each layer is stitched to the one below with a brown co-ordinating thread using either running or zig zag stitch. My sewing machine thinks it's Christmas, it is so long since it saw the light of day. The tile sentiment in the centre is from my stash.
Thank you for taking a look, all your comments are much appreciated.


  1. It's lovely Jen. Love the way you've layered up the borders.
    Hope you have a very Happy New Year.

  7. The sewing is great! It adds so much to the piece that mere gluing would never add. What a beautiful piece.
