Going Digital























I have had a few experiments using digital images and always go back to stamping but after seeing this card by Lucy I was tempted to have another go. I am really into using fashion type images at the moment and when I saw that sewing machine I was really tempted to buy the Sew Crafty  kit by Hero Arts.























Made this card for the current Hero Arts challenge " Home and Mothers Day" but I am also going to use it for Lucys challenge which is "Stitching".  As is fitting with a card based on dressmaking I have added machine stitching to the background papers  (much easier to see in the close up image).

Thanks for looking and leaving comments, I always love reading them!
