Christmas in August with added Stitching


I usually do not combine challenges but this card took me awhile so I felt OK doing so. The theme at Penny black saturday challenge was stitching Week 63 http://pennybfriendssaturdaychallenge.blogspot.com/ I rececived a sew mini for my anniversary last year and just haven't got the hang of it but I keep thinking about it and today I was determined to get it out and try again since the Penny black challenge was stitching. This is my first card that I have ever made with sewing. The Simon Says Challenge this week was Christmas in August. I received this stamp last week and was just dying to use it so this challenge was perfect. The Simon Says challenge can be found here http://www.simonsaysstampschallenge.blogspot.com/ This stamp is by Penny black. I added the dots with my new white gel pen that I got yesterday at the CK convention and the image is colored with copics and the color copics that I did not have I used prisma color pencils blended with a copic blender marker. Thanks so much for looking.

She is adorable. Adding her to my wishlist. A must have and you did a super job with the copic markers.
