Stampavie and More - Challenge 42

Finally - a card for a challege. I've spent so much time playing around with craft stuff without actual making any cards.

There is a great sketch by Betty at Stampavie and more this week.

I set myself the extra challenge of trying to find some papers to match an image I had already coloured - it was an odd colour combination due to the fact I only had five Copics at the time and just had to use them!
I think it has worked, but as usual, once the card was finished I looked at it and thought "I should have done that differently" - is anyone else like that?
I've inked around the DP to give it definition but I don't think this shows up in the photo.

I've definitely used the wrong colour thread for stitching here - oh well, we live and learn.
This is what I used to make this card:-
DCWV cardstock
Branda Pinnick DP
Buttons from Stash
Prima flowers
Pearls - magazine freebie
Sentiment - Cuddly Buddly
Stamp - from a very kind blog buddy
Sewing machine
Copic Ciao - Manga 3 set
Cuttlebug - floral fantasy embossing folder
Thank you for looking - I appreciate you stopping by my blog.
Now I'm off to enjoy this beautiful weather.
