Sugar Creek Hollow...........

Afternoon peeps hope you are all well, this is a scheduled post as I'm in Italy, hopefully the sun is shining for you all as well as me, cos we so derserve some sun after this wet Summer.
The challenge this week at Sugar Creek Hollow is use fabric but no ribbon or lace........this is a toughie because I lurvvvvvve my lace, so I thought I'd do the next best thing and create a ruffle of fabric to go around the main image which I used TAP paper for ......really easy to use and keeps all the colour of the main image when transfering onto the fabric available from Crafty Individuals, I then stitched down the pearls on top of the ruffle, I wanted it to still look kinda shabby so I frayed the edges. I used the corner Anja die to create the square background. The delish papers are Pion Cherry Blossom available from Live and Love Crafts .......as is the lovely seam binding that I used for the bow. I even stitched down the buttons and around the edges of the paper.............never done so much sewing....lol. although it was a struggle to thread the needle.



Thanking you for your comments 
will catch up when I get back
hugs n smiles
