Standing in the Shadows of Love

Hi and I bet you are singing along already. Standing in the Shadows of Love...... a classic soul song from the wonderful Four Tops and my inspiration for this card that I am entering into this weeks challenge over at Allsorts Challenge Blog where the challenge is "inspired by a song". This is quite a simple card for me with white space!!

The story within my card is about someone (as the image could be male or female) who is in love with someone, yet that someone doesn't know and is totally unaware. They are on a journey of self discovery in order to find the courage to declare their love. Oooohh that's a bit deep.....................
Main image stamp is from Paperartsy.Heart stamp, film ribbon, tissue tap and chit chat sticker all from Tim Holtz. I have also added machine stitching to add some texture. I even impressed myself that I could thread my sewing machine up without referring to the instruction booklet. Now I'm sure that doesn't sound like much of an achievement, but believe me it is to me........................
Thanks for looking
