Stitch It Up!

A while ago I covered a card blank with this paper and then realised it wasn't quite what I wanted so since then its stayed in a box just waiting to be used! I had the colour in mind when I coloured the image from Michelle Perkett Studio with Aquamarkers.

It fits with the current challenge which is:

Stitch It Up - Faux or Real Stitching

The paper is from Funky Fairy - Pinkie Pops which I don't think is available any more. I've cut the image out with my only set of Nestabilities (I'm hoping for more!) and layered it onto more pink card and some black too.

The ribbon is from my stash and I've made a double bow by adding seperate lengths of ribbon and gluing them down. The large gem hides the messy bits!

A bit of inking and faux stitching around the edges of the card and layers and its complete!
