This is for Mau!

Hello Friends
Please accept my apologies for being such a useless blogger, I can't believe its been over 2 months since my last post. I need more hours in the day!!
Also I'm dedicating this post to my blogging pal Mau who has sent me some lovely messages while I've been absent. Thank you Mau.
I've been experimenting on some of my cards and this one is so different for me. I usually go for neat and tidy cards, but I've had a go a distressing and sewing.  Mmm I blame Teresa she has such beautiful cards. I think I'm pleased with it! So here it is:

Bild Malarna Stamp - Mimosa Hello
coloured with Promarkers
Papers are 6x6 Magnolia
Tim Holtz distress ink and distressing tool
Martha Stewart butterfly punch
Doily, charm and bling from stash
Sentiment is Personal Impression
The Bakers twine, ribbon and stamp all came from crafts-4-you.

I really hope you like what I've done with this card as I said it's definately something different for me. So I would really love to see your comments, thanks for stopping by.
