Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - The Professionals

This week, it's Sonia's turn to set the theme of the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge, and she has chosen:

'The Professionals'
(ie. Doctor, Nurse, Fireman, Teacher etc...)


Our sponsor for this challenge is:


The prize is a $15 voucher from Heather's Hobbie Haven!

It took me a while to find a suitable image to use for this challenge...and in the end settled for this Penny Black stamp (called 'Sentiments')...so my pforessional is (in case you can't tell!) is a Postman! The papers are from the 'Whiteout' collection by We R Memory Keepers...I embossed a couple of the plainer ones using my Cuttlebug 'Spots & Dots' and Sizzix 'Plaid' folders...sanding over the raised areas to reveal the white core. I distressed all of the edges, then added faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a white gel pen. The sentiment stamp is by Lili of the Valley.


I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
