The sketch: Sketch & Stash. I have used new papers, an old unused stamp and buttons that I've had forever, so tried to use a few up here :-)

'New': Fussy & Fancy Friday. I have used new papers.

'Add stitching': Just Us Girls.

'Shabby chic' (or my interpretation of it): Simon Says Challenge.

'Texture': Crafty Creations.

'Use embossing powder': Gingersnap Creations.

Papers and sentiment: Bo Bunny ~ Persuasion: Blooms and My Sweet. I have embossed the edges of each layer and added some machine stitching.

Image: Magnolia ~ Tilda with Birdcage, coloured with copics, added some stickles and layered onto a Hambly acetate.

Buttons from my stash were hand sewn on and I added some bobble trim and lace also from my stash.

Thank you for looking.
