Been using the scanner and papertake weekly challenge

So seeing as I'm not going to have a camera to photo my cards I have been trying to scan the one I made today to see if its possible, I used to scan all my cards until I got to use Tristan's camera but you don't get the same result as when they are photographed, they lose some of the dimension and look quite flat. But this is the end result:


I made it for the papertake weekly challenge its my first time doing the challenges and I had such fun making this card I will certainly participate in future ones! This week the challenge is to use stitching on your project so I have stamped a paisley Anita's stamp with versamark (which doesn't show up too well in the picture but can be seen in real life) and hand stitched inside the outer lines with embroidery thread to make a background pattern, then added a pink bead to the centers (it shows up purple in the scanned image but it real life it is pink and does match- honest!). The image is again from PC Crafter Country Mice by Laurie Furnell- I cant stop using these cute images! Watercoloured with whispers pens, nestabilities cricles glittered at the edges with iridescent glitter glue, prima and papermania flowers, chip board leaves. I was thinking it needed something in the top right hand corner but looking at it now I think that would make it too crowded- What do you think? x

Over on her blog, Inky and Scrappy, Jamie is giving away some fab Blog candy, you can find it here

Top corner would definitely detract from the rest as far as I'm concerned. I love the different layers going on here.
