Papertake Weekly Challenge ~ A Stitch in time....

This weeks challenge is A stitch in time which is simply to use stitching on your project! It can be real or faux! Well to be honest with you I cheated on this one. If you read the previous post you'll know how my days been. I did eventually get my DH's birthday card finished, which has taken me all weekend to make (kept getting sidetracked by candles lol) then I remember the PTW challenge, hopped over and had a look hoping that the card I'd just made would fit the challenge.... it didn't! But it does now lol!

CS ~ Papermill, DP ~ Pink Petticoat, image ~ coloured with watercolour pencils and H2O's (haven't got a clue what that shiny spot on the face is, but its not there irl) sentiment ~ pc generated, string ~ Poundland, charms ~ Crafts Central and faux stitching done with a compass, ruler and a gel pen. Glossy Accents on fish.
