Charisma Cardz - Stitching



Back again today with another card!  :)  This one is for our new challenge over at Charisma Cardz where this week our theme is 'stitching'.  We would like to see real or faux stitching on entries this week, and are sponsored by Some Odd Girl and The Stamping Boutique .

I used a fab image called Alice Mae as she looks just like my neice who is almost 21 :) 

This card is 8 x 8 inches (its huge!) and I hand-stitched and distressed K&Co papers, layered, punched and die cut bazzil kraft coloured card, and followed the great sketch over at Sketch Saturday.  The flowers are WOC, dies are spellbinder and the PATP is Martha Stewart.

I am entering this card in the below competitions:

Sketch Saturday - Fab Sketch
Saturday Challenge - Anything Goes + sparkle
One Stitch at a Time - Anything Goes
Emerald Faeries - Punches/Dies
Bunny Zoe's Crafts - Lace it up
Creative Craft Challenges - Congratulations
Ladybug Crafts - Tag it
Truly Scrumptious - Distressing
I am currently playing catch-up on commenting this week, but thanks ever so much for visiting my blog today,
