All stitched up with the Southern Girls

Hello, it's me again! Only one post today...I promise! This card is for our new challenge over at Southern Girls. The theme is stitching...real or faux and we're sponsored by Sasayaki Glitter and Wild Orchid Crafts, so two very lucky people will be winning a lovely prize. My cute image is courtesy of Sasayaki Glitter, she's called Mia and is available here. She's coloured with copics and die cut using a stitched edge die. The fishtail banner is sewn on using real, ahem yes... real stitching! I added a swirly die cut, a few pearls and a stamped sentiment. 
Be sure to pop over to Southern Girls to admire the lovely creations of my talented teamies, there's a lot to enjoy there, then it's up to you to get stitching and join the fun.
Thanks for taking the time to visit today....and for those of you in the UK stay warm!

  17. Chris, oh my goodness, the most amazing treat arrived for me yesterday! What a surprise and delight! That wee stamp is gorgeous, that is so lovely of you and especially when it should have been ME sending YOU a birthday card!! I love that stamp, it's super cute and I'll put it to good use for sure. I have to say, your card is a keeper hunny. That sweet Rapunzel image is super cute (I must colour mine up soon too) and the way you coloured it, divine! I loved the way you had the 'thanks' letters above her hand, that was inspired!!! I'm so touched and you utterly made my week hunny! Grateful hugs, Wends xoxo
