Less is More Week 77 - Sewing

I have to agree with Mandi at Less is More this week; "Can't sew, won't sew," that's my sentiments exactly when it comes to the dreaded needle and thread! Ever since my primary school teacher made me undo ALL the stitching on a stuffed teddy bear I was soooo proud of making, saying that the stitching was ugly and I could 'do better' :(  Funny how certain things from your childhood stay with you for 30 odd years eh?!
Having said that, suprisingly, from concept to fruition, my entry for this weeks LIM challenge took no time at all. I think this will be a good design to use when I need a 'quick card' in the near future.
Enjoy the sunshine whilst it's here!!

Paper: Wild Rose Studio "Butterfly Garden"
