Hi all, daylight went too fast yesterday. So here is another one of my recent wins pictured in proper light (natural). They're gorgeous vintage stamps from Paper Pretties called Timeless love, thankyou so much, I'm hoping to use this set quite a bit next month and today entering into their own challenge 'sewing'. I used a freebie d/load from Far Far Hill (lovely vintage papers if you're ever stuck), stamped with Black Memento, sewed my panels first, stuck them down with wet glue whilst my gift bag template was flat, put it all together with more wet glue, attached some brads to hold the flap together, red ribbon from Crafty Ribbons. The chocolates are still there, I've been good!

The back showing the fastened flap.

Other challenges entered are Crazy 4 'vintage, shabby look', new to me Sugar Creek Hollow 'vintage/valentine', Crafty sentimrents 'Favourite things', Paper Romance (new to me) is Anything but a card and they also had a fab hop which I joined in, CES is 'bold and bright', and Stamptacular Sundays 'whateva'. Enjoy a fab Monday until next time!

This is so pretty Ruby and so darn clever. The stitching is a wonderful touch and of course the paper is fab - thanks for the link on that as I love digi papers. We appreciate you joining the Sugar Creek Hollow challenge again - it's a joy to see your creativity each week.
