Take a Present

I've used a cute Nellie Snellen image today from The Stamp Basket called Take a Present, and my new Magnolia Papers.  I really love the soft pink of the papers, and didn't want to matt them onto dark pink papers, so I matted them onto white card, and inked the edges to give them some definition.

I cut out a square from the backing paper and re-layered it after matting it and stitching around the edge.  I also stitched around the image panel.

The sentiment was typed and then inked over with a pink Stardust gel pen and cut out using a notables die.
