Hand-Stitched Starburst Card

I made this card for Lora's stitching challenge on the CardSwaps fall online crop. I saw one of these starburst cards on SCS a few days ago and thought this would be the perfect opportunity to try it out. The one I saw wasn't stitched, but I thought that would work well for it. My sewing machine is not working right so I hand-stitched between the pieces. I also stitched around the sentiment. I embossed the bottom piece with the Victorian Cuttlebug EF, then sanded it. I scissor distressed the edges and inked with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink. I embellished with some red gems, lace, ribbon, button and stick pin. The papers I used for the starburst are Basic Grey Fruitcake.

The tutorial for the starburst is on the Operation Write Home web site.

Thanks for stopping by!

This one and the vintage angels are my two favorites from the crop. them!
