A new creation and as usual a needle and cotton were involved

I've been working on this one for over a week as there is a fair bit of hand stitching involved. The background papers are from My Minds Eye, I adore MME they are my favourite paper producers. When I was in America last year I found a Michaels Craft store I thought I'd died and gone to heaven, not sure the OH and kids were so thrilled. I could have spent the entire holiday budget in there but common sense provailed as I also had to consider baggage allowance :o(. I left with some lovely ribbons, flowers and 1 paperstack. :o)
This card has another lovely Jellypark image on it and when I'd finished colouring her in I felt I needed to add the stitching to her dress, I think it completed her perfectly. I love my little pearls at the moment and I always try to use them in my bright, contemporary style cards, more so ironically than any vintage ones I may make.

She is available to purchase from my Etsy store
