Colour Q 139


I'm back with my card for this week's Colour Q Challenge, here is the inspiration piece

Such a cute top, I love the detail down the side seam too

And this is my card

This is about the 3rd version - my original inspiration came from a paper bag my son decorated last weekend with some offcuts he found lying around my studio, but as often happens, things tend to change on the fly for me. Hidden under this sentiment, is a version that was embossed directly onto the card.  Unfortunately it wasn't quite bold enough, so I added this one over the top, popped up on dimensionals.

I'm quite happy with the way this has turned out.  It kind of reminds me of those old fairisle jumpers your Nana used to make for you.

Hope you've been enjoying your weekend and thanks for visiting.
