Pearly Pins!

Hi Folks,

Well after bombarding you with lots of posts last week, I don't know what happened to this week!
This card has been on my desk all week in various stages waiting to be assembled and if I'm not quick I'll miss the challenges it was designed for!
The image is from Inkylicious, borrowed from crafty friend Diane.
The challenge over at Craft Room is Pins/Charms -  improvised and made my own from a broken pearl necklace. The feathers and organza ribbon were both died with a mix of Bundled Sage and Tumbled Glass DI.
I stitched all layers, I love this effect - don't know why I don't do it more often !

I also am entering this in:
  That Craft Place - Vintage
  Craft your Passion - The Power of Three (3 pins)
  Created with Love - 3 of a Kind
  Crafting for All Seasons - Stitching
  Divas by Design - Anything Goes

I must tell you my news - I was a 'Perfect Pinky' over at In the Pink, if you haven't been there, pop over, its a new challenge for anyone who loves  - yes, you guessed - PINK!

That's it for now, hope you all have a good Bank Holiday weekend and fingers crossed it doesn't rain too much!

Avril xx

Wonderfully put together... the colours, the image, the gorgeous pearl pins, and that delicate green ribbon - just lovely! And I'm so envious of those who can get a sewing machine to behave for them - I'm with you, I think the stitching looks fantastic!
