Celtic Christmas - WOJ Challenge No 2


2 Posts before 7am must be a record for me here is my second DT card for today.

Our challenge for you this week on Whiff of Joy Challenge is to add stiching to your card, it can be hand stiching, machine or faux whatever takes your fancy, I am sure you will come up with some great ideas. We had a great response to our first challenge and hope to see you all again this week, there is not a prize this week what we would like to offer you is the chance to be GUEST DESIGNER for 2 weeks, so pop on over to our Challenge blog and get inspiration from my fellow DT members (plus a sneak peek at the new WOJ stamps that are available from 4th October).



My Favourite Willow stamp has been coloured with Distress Inks and lots of H20's, she is such a joy to colour. The stitch design has been stitched with Maderia Metalic threads in Green and Gold paper is BG and the flowers have been stamped with Stempleglede retro flower stamp and punched using a variety of different punches. Hope you like
