Over The Threshold

Afternoon all.  Thanks for your get well wishes, I feel 80% better today - that headache was still going last night and I woke up feeling like I had a hangover.  Had a very quiet morning, but feeling more like my old self this afternoon, although a little spaced out.

I spotted the CRAFT Challenge of A Stitch In Time just after I finished making this simple little wedding card.  Destiny?  I doubt it, but no harm in trying!

See, told you I wasn't right - another wonky photo, rofl - it's becoming a trademark
Stamped image is LOTV Over The Threshold
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Sentiment is from the LOTV Clear Set - Vintage Labels Just To Say
Sat and pierced holes all the way round with my pokey tool and a ruler
Stitches are done in Antique Linen Distress Marker to match the Groom's suit
Matting layer from scraps box

There are two weddings coming up at work soon - this was the simplest one to do.  The other might take a bit more planning (given the theme of the wedding - gulp - but can't give too much away now).

Thanks for popping over, I truly appreciate each and every visit.  Sorry that I am soooo behind in catching up with what you are up to.

It's a new Without Words challenge tomorrow so hope you will pop back to see what the team are up to.

Hugs, Squirrel xx

Gorgeous card Squirrel. I love that image and your colouring is so beautiful. The faux stitching looks wonderful, I would have thought it was machine stitched if you hadn't said.
I hope you are feeling 100% soon
hugs Sue xx
