A Peaceful Christmas

Over at Craft Your Passion the lovely Lauretta has set this week’s challenge in the form of this sketch:

For more details on how to join in and grab some inspiration from the DT’s beautiful cards please click on the link above.There are some fab digi stamps waiting for one lucky winner and the chance to become a Guest Designer (look for the link under the Followers at the top of the blog).

I got to work with the very serene looking  ANGEL available from Lauretta’s Digital Stamps.I chose to use her on a Christmas card but I’m sure she would work well for ‘Thinking of you’ type cards too.I’ve used my Sew Easy Tool again on the die cut circle.This time with the Hem Stitch head.I held one of the small Standard Circles in place then went round it to get the stitches in the right place.I think it worked pretty good!I only used three strands of the floss to make it more delicate.I wish I had some metallic thread as this would look so pretty.
