Hanglar Girl For Mum & I've Got a New Camera

Hello everyone, sorry i have not posted for a few days but i was fed up of uploading rubbish photos of my cards but my fabulous Hubby has bought me a new camera!! It has lots of functions on it that i haven't got a clue about but hopefully will get the hang of it!! So here are some pics of my latest card which is my first attempt at a Center Stepper Card, you can find the sketch for it Here

Main View
Image - hAnglar & StAnglar
Medium - Promarkers
DP, Pearls and Lace - All from Mellissa Francis
Tools - Marianne Design Flourishes and Leaf dies. Spellbinders Lattice Rectangle die and Magnolia Doohickey Vintage Tag die
Ribbon and Button are Recycled.- Diecut Letters - Papermania
I've also used my chalks to add a touch of colour to the dies and around the image.
Side View
Close Up
Hopefully this shows my handstitching.

Top Tip - When handstitching i use a stitch ripper to pierce the holes which makes it easier as your not  forcing the threaded needle and damaging your papers!!
