Hi everyone! I am a veterinary technician living in NY who loves to pen pal and make cards in my spare time. I have never been good at crafts since I can barely draw a straight line with a ruler but I was determined to give it a go.  I love learning all the different techniques and ways to craft. Follow me on my journey as I grow as a card maker!

OSAAT Challenge 196

Time for a new challenge at One Stitch At A Time.  The challenge is sponsored by StitchyBear Digi Outlet and the prize will be all the images the DT  used in challenge #194

 My DT card:

 This is an image by Ali. I colored her with promarkers.  I used some tattered rose distress ink on the edges.  All the papers are from my stash.  A handmade bow and some buttons were added.  The sentiment was punched with a stampin up scalloped oval and oval punches.  Card layout was inspired by the sketch at Little miss Muffet Challenges.
