Stitching at A Gem of a Challenge

Hello again everyone.
I hope you are well and having a good weekend. As promised I'm here with my second card of the day.

Today is the start of a new
For the next 2 weeks our fun theme (picked my me!) is
Stitching 
(Real or Faux)

The prize for the winner is 2 Individual Digi images
(NO SETS, PERSONALISED WATERMARK'S OR SENTIMENT SETS
of the winners choice from PINKGEM DESIGNS.....

I have used the adorable Bella with Bouquet. She is so sweet and a joy to colour.
The layers have been hand stitched, I really enjoy doing this but it takes me a while so don't do it as often as I would like.


Items Used: Bella with Bouquet coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers
Distress Ink - Antique Linen
Papers - LOTV and (possibly) K and Co
Sentiment - LOTV 
Die-Namics Pierced Oval Stax
Spellbinders Floral Ovals
Marianne Design Craftables Circle , flower and leaf stitch die
Tonic Studios small and medium flower punches
Woodware Medium Leaf Punch

If you take a look at A Gem of a Challenge, you will see the wonderful creations made by the rest of this week's design team.

I would like to enter my card into the following fabulous challenges:

In the Pink - Anything Goes As long as it's pink!
My Craft Spot - 3D Flowers
Natalie and Amy's Challenge - Die cuts & Flowers

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop and look at my blog once again today. I really do appreciate it and love to read any comments you may wish to make.
I hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend.
bye for now
hugs
