Seconds away...round 2 - Simply Sassy Competition!!

Well this isn't the best photo but I couldn't wait til Thursday when I will have daylight and my day off but I will take another then but for now here it is. I can hardly believe that I have actually made round 2 of the simply Sassy competition as there were so many beautiful entries. For our entries in round 2 over at Sugar Nellie's Simply Sassy competition is to create a card to whatever you like with the chance to win a Grand Excalibur and a DT spot.

So as you know I quite like to cut out my image and I quite like layers and I also love embossing so I added all of those features. I also wanted to do some stitching which I have done but to be honest it's a bit skew whiff as my machine was not playing with me and I think it may have spoiled it but maybe not...could be an added feature...squint stitching!! I have used Basic Grey - Marjolaine papers, a couple of little flowers I received in my candy win from Lesley which I thought matched quite well and of course some glitter. I hope you like it and even if this is as far as I get in the competition, it's all just fun taking part.
