My 1st DT card for Cooking It Up With Katie challenge # 21

Yay the day is finally here - the day to show you my 1st DT creation for Cooking it up with Katie.

This weeks recipe is

Pick a sketch challenge from another blog (make sure the sketch is still open when you post your entry)
Use some Yellow
Do a little stitching (real or faux)

Our sponser this week is the lovely Melissa from Meljens Designs and she has, very kindly, donated 4, yes 4, images for the winner of this fortnights recipe challenge.

So onto my creation I have used the sketch over at Creatilicious Challenges as seen below

Isn't it a lovely sketch I'm quite sure that I will use this one again.

My DP is from October afternoon - a double sided sheet. Love it when I can do this saves so much time and effort matching papers and trying to co-ordinate them and although I love to spend hours looking through my papers sometimes this can take longer than actually making my card !

I hand stitched the border (that's why it's wobbly !) but I do like the look and it is, I think worth the effort.
The flourish is a sizzix die cut on my bigshot and the buttons are from stash. The curly wire is from a faux flower (the stem) and I just wound it round the pointy end of my piercing tool to make the twirls.

That gorgeous flower is, of course, Prima - one which I won from a blog hop I participated in a while ago.

Of course the star of the card is that super summery image from Meljen Designs - isn't it absolutely gorgeous - I love sunflowers x
You can purchase Meljens designs from Whimsy Stamps - there are loads and loads to choose from you will def be spoilt for choice !

I hope you'll stop by at Cooking it up with Katie and see all the other DT's fab creations and that you'll also play along with us - I'm looking forward to visiting your blogs to see your creations x
