Hi It's Thursday, and that means its my Guest Designer piece for

Today I have used her 
The stamps can be stamped as in my background or stamped and stitched as in my topper.
I have used a selection of inks and papers from Stampin Up and the embroidery floss was from my stash.
Once you have stamped the image you need to go around the card and pierce the holes before you start to sew. To prevent knots and lumps leave a cm of thread and stick it down with tape. Once I had finished I Mounted the image on card to match my colours,
To compliment my card I used my Cameo to cut out the Smile! svg which is also designed by Sarah Hurley. Check out her site or the Silhouette  site for other of her digital  die cuts  

Thanks for visiting,
 please let me know what you think.
