Hiya Crafty Friends, thoroughly enjoying this fab weather we have been having! Though still just a tad too warm!!... Anyways it's that time again, the start of another monthly challenge over at Unicorn Challenge. Our theme being 'Stitching real or faux'. For my DT inspiration, I have used various dies and ones with faux stitching. No digi image this time, wanted to try sometng different. The layout I remember seeing online quite a while ago, can't remember where though, the latice effect I took inspiration from the new die by Craig Laird at Craft Buddy, which is next on my list to buy but this is my interpretation using a die I already had,  hope you like it!

Dovecraft - Butterfly dies
Spellbinders - 'With Love' sentiment die
Creata - Green mirror card and Green metalic silk card
From My Stash - Turquoise vellum, Turquoise linen card, Silver glitter card, White paper, White card, Pearls and Gems

I created this using a 7x7 card blank. Matt and layered linen card on to mirror card. For center, I layered backing paper with die cut latice with plain white paper and sqaure faux stitched mirror card. I decorated using die cut vellum flowers, stamens and branches. Finishing with die cut sentiment, pearls and gems...
