Warm me up, Buttercup!

This week's challenge for you at For Fun Challenges is themed Cooler Temperatures - Show Us Some Warmth! We would love to see your WARMING creations using only RED, YELLOW and BROWN!!! We are sponsored by Digi My World who is offering a prize of $10 store credit! Yay an image shopping spree!

Here is my creation for you, hopefully something that will warm you a little!

I've used the Digi My World "Give a Cheer" set...

Ingredients: Cardstock - Portacraft; Promarkers; Stardust Pens - Sakura; Chalks - Pebbles Inc; Threads - DMC

I printed and coloured the image, and after it was all dry, I sponged chalk into the background.  I mounted it on brown textured card, then another brown layer, and onto the cardbase.  I then set to pricking holes for stitching.  Using a simple stem stitch I stitched round the three layers, and added some cross-stitches in the corners.

As a large card - 6x6 inches, it would also be a great embellishment for a 12x12 scrapping layout!

Do hop over to the For Fun Challenges blog and see our DT creations - I hope they inspire you to join in our challenge! Thanks for peepin'!
