In Stitches

Hello.  Welcome.  Another sunny day.  Another frosty night.   Maybe the weather is like life.  One minute up, the next down.  Say la doo dah.  

I decided to go black and white.  Can't really call it colouring since I just added some black promarker to my stamped image.   This is Pretty Hat from The Greeting Farm.  I've stitched a button to her hat.  My layers are all handmade paper.  The first black layer is actually two, although that doesn't show in the picture.  You can see the texture on the top layer.  I stitched them together using Scary Monster, aka my sewing machine, with a fancy stitch.  Looks like what you get on a heart monitor to prove you are still with the living.  I used a piece of white organza and a narrow white ribbon across the card and the sentiment is a Kort og Godt stamp.
