CPS Challenge

Hi everyone,

This week over on the CPS blog they have this sketch.
So this is the card that I made for it.  Very simple & I am so amazed that I managed to do that.  Mind you it took me ages to get to this final card.  I kept on adding things then taking them off & I think this bow came off at least three times before I finally decided it needed to stay.  I was heavily inspired by the very talented Alice, I am privilaged enough to have a few of her beautiful cards.  If you haven't been to Alice's blog or flickr page(s) then you are in for a treat :D.  So I know it's not an "Alice card" but I was inspired by Alice's use of stitching & the way she uses distress inks on the edges of her nestibilities. 

Have a great week everyone & happy crafting xoxoxoxo
