Stitching, real or faux at Creative Moments

Good morning, here's my card for our new Challenge starting today at Creative Moments, the optional theme is stitching, real or faux. I chose this beautiful image to use, Sophie, courtesy of our lovely sponsor Rick St Dennis. I've coloured her with copics, then die cut the image with a stitched oval die. The 'lace' edging the oval frame is a Tim Holtz strip die. The fishtail banner behind the ovals is hand cut, embellished  with ribbon and a little buckle (the buckle was a silver colour so I coloured it with a bronze copic) and some faux stitching. I added flowers and die cut leaves and a metallic decorative corner. The sentiment banner is a stamp. Thanks for visiting today and a huge thankyou to  all of you who have left such kind and generous comments recently, it's very much appreciated!
Hope you're enjoying a great week.
Chris
