Sarah Hurley 365 Challenge Stitching Real or Faux

Good evening everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with my DT card for our Stitching Real or Faux challenge at Sarah Hurley 365. For my card I used elements and papers from All Sewn Up kit with the addition of some pretty buttons from my stash. I used the Keep Calm element as my focal point, then used the Hexagon design for either side of this to give it more impact. I used stitching paper, then a panel of pink pattern paper for a flash of colour. I then placed my focal point and decorated with buttons.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Home Decor Project-Beaded Curtain Tie Backs

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with my favourite home decor make in a while. My father made me a four poster bed as he had some spare wood and I have always wanted one! So my job was to sort out the curtains and the decor to go with it. The bed was painted white and I chose Turquoise organza for my curtains. I thought for a while what sort of look I wanted and had the idea to make beaded tie backs, I wanted an opulent look so I looked for a good mix of Turquoise and other assorted vintage metallic beads, gem beads and pearls which matched well.  I found a fabulous mix of odd beads on ebay, then bought some plastic rings for my hooks, and the rest I had in my stash.  I also used Tiger tail, crimp beads, crimp covers and my jewellery tools.  I wanted to keep them as random mixes so I made each differently. I started by doubling my tiger tail, and folding this over, then fixing the first ring with a crimp and covered this with the crimp cover. I then threaded m…
