Spoon Full of Sugar - Sewing/Stitching

Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge! And the challenge today is sewing or stitching on your project. Well that is all me :0) For my card I dug deep into my stamps and pulled out an old favorite! Cornish Heritage Farms Friendly Critters. I totally adore this image!

 I love coloring these images, and was so sad to learn they are no longer made. I always wanted to collect all of them, but only got a few. These images have a ton of detail, and all though they look hard to color they are not. I colored with my Copics.

Now for the card.
Decided that because I dug deep for the image, I should use one of my older paper stacks as well. Found K&Company's Cut and Paste stack. Really wonderful papers, with that collage feel to them. I took one of the papers, and cut it into pieces, and sewed down in a random pattern. I sewed a pattern into the bottom edge of one of the pieces. Then like a ding dong I covered it up with my punched flowers...duh... but it is popping out just a bit. The flowers are EK Success and the leaves Martha Stewart Frond leaves. The centers are Liquid Pearls.  I also added three more dots to look sort of like buttons or brads on the right side, above the typed words (these are on the pattern paper, but they look like I typed them don't they!) The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.

I had fun with this card, and it went so fast... no thinking really - I think it was the paper.... just matched up! Now make sure to head over to Spoon Full of Sugar and see all the other sewn projects!

Today... I think we are going to head up to Ikea... about a 2 hour drive, we need some bookcases and what ever else we happen to find there... wink wink.... 

Have a wonderful Tuesday! HUGS and-

Great image, colored perfectly! I love your layout and the way you did the flowers is great! I can see the stitches under there and it makes the flowers even better!

Sweet card. I also have a few Heritage Farms images, so much fun. Love those chipmunks washing the blueberry. :)
Have a fun trip to IKEA. We do not have one very close. About 3 hours, someplace I REALLY want to visit/shop.
