This card for the challenge came about from a new digi that I purchased. It reminded me of my childhood. We raised sheep, and would get the wool made into yarn and wool bats for quilts. My grandmother taught me to knit. Using the colors today ..colored the image. Using the sentiment that came with the digi, printed it with a light grey...reason. This way I could take the dip pen and use it as a guide to write it in gold ink. The sentiment is from Power Poppy. The knitting needles and steam were outlines with the ink also. embossed with the oval die and added score lines. TFL

One of my few regrets in life is that I didn't learn to knit from my mom. Judging by the number of people who learned from their grandmothers perhaps grandmothers have more patience! :-) Your card is gorgeous! Love the rich colouring accented with that lovely penwork!

WOW! Do I love that image and your coloring on this! What a gorgeous color combination! What a fabulous job you did on the sentiment. You must have one, very steady hand. I'm a wool-a-holic. The image is a must-have.
