Allsorts Colour Challenge - Brown and Blue

WoooHooo!!! How excited am I?  Brenda from Allsorts Challenge Blog has asked me to be Guest Designer this week!!! Thank you so much Brenda!!

The Challenge this week is  Blue and Brown

The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop is sponsoring the challenge this week with a prize of some ribbons, pins and a pack of my favourite crafting item at the moment - Doilies.

I decided on a card I can use for different occasions and I used a Haberdashery kind of theme for it.

This is one of my favourite little stamps and I just happened to have this lovely paper which has a vintage sewing pattern design on it. I thought it would work perfectly for the look I wanted. Of course I had to use one of these doilies, I dabbed some brown ink over it to give it a bit of an aged look and then used some rolled flowers cut with Kraft card.

 To carry on the theme I embellished with seam binding in Tile Blue and added a few pins.
 This made a nice change from all the Christmas cards I have been making lately.

Please pop over to the Allsorts challnge blog and see what the regular designers have made and why not join in with the challenge too!
