Today's challenge over at Waltzing Mouse is to pick your favourite creation from the blogs of any of the ladies listed in the hop. After hopping around, JJ Bolton's creation inspired me the most. Here is her card. Love the elegant look of the gold embossing and the corners on the dark brown cardstock.
I do not have any flower set from WMS so I decided to use the Large Doily set to CASE her card. Instead of using gold cardstock on the corners, I decided to stamp and heat embossed them in gold. I had difficulty capturing the gold look on the photo but believe me it's gold! On JJ's card, a special template ( I think) is also used on the border of the second panel. As I do not have one, I decided to use my machine-stitched method but without thread to achieve the look-alike look.
Here is a closer look of the machine-stitched without thread
Thank you for dropping by and I am off to check the rest of the other's creations!
Here is a little update to yesterday's news. Thank to very much for all your concern and kind comments.
In total there were more than 20 secondary schools in the city of Leiden which were closed yesterday due the the shooting thread. The suspect who is an under age is being detained and the they police is still investigating the case.
All schools have resumed today and polices are being stationed at all schools. I heard from Claire that all entrances/ exits were close except one main entrance which is open for all for safety reason.
