Over to you!

That's the challenge this week from Kathy over at Bubbly Scrumptious.

Kathy has designed a sketch & some beautiful cards & set a challenge with a prize!

Kathy's sketch.
Kathy is allowing us to .......... turn it around, shrink it or stretch it, and says ...... just as long as I can still see the design is there use it however you fancy! A prize will be awarded on a "Lucky Dip" basis - so everyone who joins in will have the same chance of winning. The winner will be drawn at random and announced next Thursday (21st January)

Here is my card...

I've turned Kathy's sketch around & used scraps of Basic Grey papers for the background along with a cute little image & blooms from my craft box. I'm just a little bit annoyed with the sewing machine I used..... how can it suddenly decide to do a straight stitch when it's set on zig-zag!

Thanks for looking & Good Luck if you get chance to join the challenge. Gez.xx
