Stitching at Sundays with Crissy

Stitching is this month's challenge theme on Sundays with Crissy and you can add either real or faux stitching to your project.  

This is truly a challenge for me because I've never sewn on my cards.  Actually, I don't even pull out the sewing machine to sew clothing ~ hehehe.  So I've opted for faux stitch doodling around Crissy's digi image for Wags 'n Whiskers, called He Loves Me.  I love this sweet angel and I was worried I would ruin the image with my first attempt at faux stitch doodling BUT it was super fun and I know I'll try this again.

Image was coloured with Copics to colour and the papers are called Gypsy by Basic Grey.  Prima Crystal Pearls, flowers and butterflies are from my stash.  I used a flourish die to surround the image and sponged around the angel with Tim Holtz' Tumbled Glass DI.  I dotted her wings with Copics and then covered them with Star Dust Stickles.  
I'm entering my card into the following:
There will be five free digi's given to one lucky challenge participant who will be chosen by at the end of the month! You may now use images from any company and still be included in the draw for the blog candy prize! Those who use one of Crissy's images, either from her rubber or digital collections will be entered twice in the draw. But please respect the rule of no more than three entries per month. Otherwise your entries could be deleted.

Hopefully you're feeling inspired enough to join us! Add stitching to your project either with a machine, the Sew-Easy tool, completely by hand or do faux stitching using a pen and link your project up on the Sundays with Crissy Blog HERE.

I love to do stiching for 3 reasons.It's quick to put a card together, its better than glue {I get so sticky}and looks very cool. Mine is always crooked ,but I dont care adds to the love your card, the beautiful sunshine colours, the flowers, and such a cute image, coloured beautifully.

Maria, I really love the way you have cropped the image. And your placement of the stitches, around the inside of the die. The red background die cut is so beautiful with this layout. Just a stunning card Maria, thank you!
