Make it Feminine at Craft Rocket

Hello everyone it's time for a new challenge at Craft Rocket.  Our theme this time is Make it Feminine.  So we'd like to see all your girly creations.



This is the third and final card I've made using a kit from World of Cross Stitch magazine.  There were three little Japanese Kokeshi dolls.  They were very fiddly as there's lots of fractional stitches and the aida was very stiff.


I've used yellow and brown card from my stash and a stamped sentiment by Little Claire Designs.  The background paper was a gift from my mother-in-law.  She gave me a pack of japanese hand silk screened papers and they're all just beautiful.
