good morning all

I feel very lucky as we have on snow yet but very cold
 hiding in my craft room keeping warm hope you are all well and warm to day
 don't know how many cards I will make today as I have to go out this morning and off to my 2 hours of zumba later and sleep after lol

well on to my card

last night I used the light box which I have not used for a long time to do my embossing and then pricked out my stitching patterns and stitched it while watching tv

To make this card I used
a metal template to emboss and it had pricking patterns on it so I pricked them I used a light box to emboss some of the pattern around the stiching
I used shades of soft green thread patterend paper white card some gems stickie boarder digi stampf from fairy dust crafts and a sentiment I coloured the image with promarkers
