It's Mojo Monday and Julee has another great sketch! I also made this for the TLC where Judy has asked us to look at the techniques for 2011 and choose one to re-do. I love stitching details on cards and went with TLC304 to add Sewing/Stitching...Faux or Real. I needed to distress the Martha Stewart doily tag and started with some Antique Linen ink. Ehh...not enough...needed a hint of blue so added a tad of Baja Breeze ink. Still not grungy enough, so I added a bit of Soft Suede. I used Verve's Lovely Marquee die and cut off an edge to add a border for the sentiment. I hand dyed the seam binding using Tattered Angels Pomegranate Shimmer Mist and topped off the card with a lacy Prima flower.
