Crafty Catz #455 - ATG with optional twist of stitching

Good morning, it's my turn to host the challenge at Crafty Catz this week, which means I get to pick the optional theme- I chose stitching, it can be real stitching for those who have the time and patience, or faux stitching using dies or doodling if you prefer!
Our sponsor for this challenge is the fabulous Doctor Digi
The lucky DT were given some fun images to play with, I used Knitty Nora, isn't she great!
I used my copics for colouring and paper pieced the 'carpet'. The card base is made from a square card, I turned it sideways and ie cut the top edge, then folded the bottom half in half again, to stand up from the base. I covered this with a piece of embossed mauve DP, looks like knitted stitches.
I placed Nora on the front and a ball of wool image (free-google) behind. The circle at the top, with the smaller ball of wool image , holds the front up (I use a tiny scrap of velcro if the card doesn't behave :) . The little tag tucked behind the image has a stamped sentiment (Enjoy your Day) and more faux stitching. I had a lot of fun making this's perfect for my Aunty's birthday...she is a real Knitty Nora!!
As always there's loads to enjoy over at Crafty Catz, my teamies have created some fabulous cards this week.
Thanks for visiting and have a lovely weekend
