Cupcake Challenge 241

Hello everyone, today on Cupcake Challenge 241 we have a sketch (by me!) to follow. This week we are sponsored by My Creative Classroom and they are giving one lucky winner a seat in a class of their choice.

For my project this week I have made a bit of home decor.....this was actually a present I made for my Mum and I love how it turned out. I used my fav WMS Vintage Garden Flowers and I stamped the main image with Memento rich cocoa ink, then distressed it with antique linen and vintage photo ink.

The DPs are by Teresa Collins and each element also had the distress treatment before being stitched. I added some pearl lace from the ribbon girls and some pearls to finish off.

Finally a closer shot. The picture frame is 5 x 7 inches and my creation is 6 x 4 inches in case anyone was wondering about the dimensions!
