Use Something Old at Lexi's Creations


This Lexi's Creations challenge was really good for me as it meant using stash I hadn't used for ages:  the oriental charm, thread & those flowers had all been neglected. This fortnight's sponsor is the lovely Joanna Sheen.   I used Lexi's Okichi image - isn't she beautiful, she's been coloured her with ProMarkers.  The papers are from Designer Digitals (I think), I used my EK Success border punch, did a bit of machine sewing & added some pearls (coloured with ProMarkers to match the image).


The challenges I'm entering with this card are:
Daring Cardmakers - The World is Your Oyster
Digi Doodle - Tie it Up
Bee Crafty - Bloomin' Marvelous (again)
Stamp Magic - Flowers
Aly's - Stitching


This is my 2nd scheduled post as we are having a few days away (though I'm taking a few crafty bits with me for when hubby is watching the footy lol).  I will link the challenges up when we get back on Wednesday.
