DYSU #28 - Sew: Faux or Real

Hi Happy Bloggers,
Thursday again and so time for another challenge at Do You Stack Up. Where are the weeks going?? We want to see some Stitching this week, real or faux, the choice is yours.

And our lovely sponsors for this challenge are:
 Robyn's Fetish who are giving the winner their choice of either 5 digital stamps or 4 digital stamps and 1 paper pack
Mami Doodles who are giving the winner 4 images (3 + 1 of their choice)

And so onto my card

I have used this little cutie pie from Mami Doodles and must say what a delight she was to work with. She is part of the "Ligia Playing Dress Up" set and can be found here. I have paper pieced her boots, bows and dress and coloured her with Promarkers.  The gorgeous papers are from Pink Petticoat - Wild Blossoms collection (a freebie on the front of July's issue of Quick Cards) and I am totally in love with them. May have to pop over to the website and buy them!!

I was going to get the sewing machine out and do some real stitching but decided on faux to match that on her boots. Glad I did as I think this looks so right.  To complete the card, I added some ribbon, flowers and buttons from my stash - the buttons are in fact a pale aqua with a beautiful glitter effect but this does not show up in the photo. Shame really cos they are lovely!  The sentiment comes from Craftwork Cards.

And of course, I decorated the inside too :0)

So, you have seen my little offering and you really should hop over to the DYSU blog and take a look at the rest of the DT's creations. Gorgeous, as per usual!! I look forward to seeing your lovely entries and leaving a comment.
