On to my card

I have used faux stitching on my card. I have made patchwork with 2 papers from the Cherry Blossom Lane CD by cutting them in to equal size squares and matting them on some green card and a 3rd paper from the disc. I have then "stitched" around the squares with a fine black pen. Maisie is also from the CD and I have colored her with Spectrum Noirs and fussy cut her before using foam tape to fix her to the card. As she has a pair of scissors in her pocket and ribbon on her ear I have then added some appropriate embellishments from the Picknix Cd collection and some pink dotty buttons from my stash.
Thank you for stopping by.
