Ruffles

My new Stampendous stamp arrived while I was on holiday and so I had to give it a try as soon as I got back. I'm also on a mission to use more of my stash of basic grey papers and so I made this for Sharon as a little rak. The back strip is a piece of beautiful handmade paper - I'm not sure where it came from but the colours were just right for this. I really need a new sewing machine as the tension is all out on my 25 year old machine - maybe I can start dropping pre Christmas hints :)
