Lexi's Creations - Stitching Challenge


 The challenge starting today at Lexi's Creations is to use stitching on your project, either real or faux.  I chose this theme cos I love using my sewing machine on my cards (though I might have gone a little overboard here lol).  Joanna Sheen is our wonderful sponsor yet again :)  For my card I used Lexi's Butterscotch image which I coloured with ProMarkers & went round the outline with a quickie glue pen & Glamour Dust.  The papers are from Dovecraft & called Fantasy.  The card is finished off with flowers, butterfly & stars charms, greeting & I used some peeloffs which have been sitting on my neglected for years lol.


I'm entering this card for these challenges:

My Time to Craft - Angelic!
Futter By - Open (with Butterfly, Angel or Fairy)
Dutch Dare - Flower Inspiration
Gingersnap - Fairies

Such a pretty and feminine card. Really love to see a red head too. All the little details (ribbon, charm, flowers, butterflies) make this so special, very nicely done.
