Inky Impressions Challenge #6 --- Stitching

Happy Friday, everyone! I hope you all have fun weekends planned. If you have some time I highly recommend you pop over to Inky Impressions Challenge blog. You will fall in love with their brand new images, Lili and Angelica. I have a couple of their stamps and eagerly waiting for a couple more. These little girls are wide-eyed and adorable. The design team is a group of ultra-talented ladies, too!

For challenge #6 the theme is stitching --- real or faux. I have a sewing machine but it is still packed from our move. I haven't used it for years, not since I got into scrapbooking and cardmaking. So, for my card, my stitching is faux.

This image is Angelica's Daydream. I found sentiments about dreams for the outside and inside that seemed appropriate.

I colored her with Copics and framed the image with die cuts using my Nesties. The stitching is purple ink pen. The DP is from "Me and My Big Ideas" and the flowers from Oriental Trading Co. The paper "ribbons" are embossed with the Cuttlebug Dotted Swiss folder.

The inside is a simple sentiment about believing in your dreams. I have a packet of these acetate tags and sentiments and they make nice accents.

Thanks for stopping by! While you are here, if you haven't already, pop up to the top of my blog where I have some blog candy to celebrate my first year of blogging on Made for Keeps. What a year it has been, too!
