Paper play DT in stitches

Hi guys,
over at Paper play we have a fab challenge for you, stitching
now as usual it can be real faux, hand or machine,
we are being sponsored by Destination Art with a
$25 AUD store voucher
as you know I used to sew for a living so for me it's usually my sewing machine that's used though I have been known to hand stitch as I used to love, embroidery, tapestry etc, mind you that was way before I discovered making my own cards, and that they say was that lol 
right I'd best get on with showing you my card he he,

Tilda with daisy is coloured with my distress inks, yes I'm really into my DI'S at the moment, my poor copics aren't getting a look in lol,
I bought myself some gorgeous Pion papers and these are on here too,

I have made my card doing the basic square style and putting my own stepper front on again, on this I have used a Memory Box die called spring border
I've used my gorgeous new bloomy tag die from Magnolia again too, defo one of my faves, the charm is from my stash,the flowers from a local market and WOC I think lol,

Magnolia down Under ~ anything goes
Paper sundaes ~ Saturated colours
The squirrel and Fox ~ Something new
Simply create ~ layers and more layers
Dream valley ~ anything goes
Lollipop crafts ~ Anything new
Anything goes ~ anything goes
Everybody art ~ Shabby
Papertake weekly ~ die cuts/ make it cute

well guys, catch you up later,
have fun!
