Eleanor's Hummingbird - CK #45

Hello again my friends.  Happy Thursday.  This week seems to have just flown by.  I hope you all had a wonderful and safe 4th of July.  Mine was quiet which is how I like it.  Managed to get some outside yard work done and also worked in my stamp room trying to get it a little bit organized.  It's still got a long way to go.

I'll get right to my card for this challenge.  The theme is "Sew It Up."  Please use some kind of stitching either real or faux on your card otherwise you'll have to be disqualified.

Materials Used:
  • Image- Lacey Sunshine - Eleanor's Hummingbirds
  • Leaving the sentiment for later
  • Cards stock - Xpress It Blending Card; Stampin Up Razzleberry
  • Designer Paper - Basic Gray - Green at Heart
  • Accessories - Lace and bling from my stash; Wish I remembered where I got that die.  I really love this one.  Signo White Gel Pen
