Stand Out From The Crowd

A simple card today which happens to fit well with the 'Minimal' challenge that is going on over at the Creative Card Crew this week.

I've managed to do another challenge card - yippee!

So this card has been nestie embossed and I've stamped directly onto it with this gorgeous cute Matryoshka Dolls stamp from My Cute Stamps. The image has been coloured with PrismaColor pencils and Sansodor and I might have done a little hand-stitching again :)


Materials:
Stamp - My Cute Stamps
Ink - VersaFine Onyx Black
Colouring - Prismacolor; sansodor
Usual Suspects - Double-sided tape
Other - Cuttlebug; Nestibilities; ribbon; embroidery thread

  7. Sorry it has taken me sooo long to come and say hi!! I have had a manic few weeks!!! How stinkin cute is this card!! I used to have a set of those dolls when i was little. My grandad gave them to me and i named each one of the little dolls. I can still remember that awful smell that they had though. Still they were far tooo cute to let a pong put me off playing with them. I hope your doing well sweetie,
    Take care
