DCM - Visit to the Haberdashery Department


This weeks challenge at DCM is Haberdashery - make a card using items you would find in a haberdashery deptsuch as ribbons, buttons etc. Sewing may also be used but not as the haberdashery element, the theme was free. I used a gel transfer image onto linen with gold stitching on the side. I enjoyed this one :0)
