ZigZags at Alphabet Challenges


Hi Folks,

It's the last letter -Z -  and ZigZags is the theme over at Alphabet Challenges.  I decided to go down the sewing route - zigzag stitches and a sewing themed card.  The backing was make using the Tim Holtz Haberdashery Set, and the pattern image was stamped repeatedly onto pink cardstock, the main image was also stamped onto pink card before being stitched to a brown mat. The Singer invoice is Crafty Individuals and the embossed sheet is TH ledger.  All distressing was done with Tattered Rose, Victorian Velvet and Spun Sugar. The flower is TH Tattered Florals, and stamped with Vintage Photo and a muslin backing. Pearl buttons and lace from stash.
We would love to see what ZzigZags you create, so please join us and if you need inspiration, the rest of the DT have lots to show.
I am entering this card in:
  In the Pink - Distressed
 Charisma Cardz - Pink & Brown
  Its All about the Vintage - Lace & Pearls
  TipTopTuesday - Lucious Layers

Hope you all have a great weekend, and I hope to do some catching up in Blogland, as hopefully the Internet problems we have had over the last 4 weeks have now been resolved. (Fingers crossed)

Avril xx
