I am pretty sure this is my 22nd
 link up to LeighSB's Christmas in July - I am trying to add something for each of the 24 days... so only 2 more days...

Today's card is just a very quick and simple one.
I was looking through my stencils (for another purpose) and I came across this Stamplorations one.

I thought I would just try painting through it with my Zig pens - not a perfect result but I quite like the shimmer and shine!

I trimmed the image and added faux stitching around it with a brown fineliner. I added this to a white card blank matted with a paper from crafterschoice Minerals 12 by 12 paper pad.
Finally I added a sentiment - die cut and added to a scrap of card, faux stitched and added on dimensional tape.

I will add this card to Leigh's Linky. 

I will also add it to The Build Your Stash Holiday Hop

Happy Crafting!
