Do what you love

For the last day of the month of holiday cards at Beccy's Place the challenge was "Do what you love". Well I love to make stitched cards, but I have already placed to many the past month that I now decided to make a card with ready prepared craft stuff that I had laying around and this is the result.


I used wooden texts, a 3D sticker and a frame card that was laying around. Things I normally don't use a lot and that do take up place...
