Friday Sketchers # 115 and Pollycraft Monday # 57

I started to make this card last night, although only got it finished today.  I have had this image for a couple of months now, but liked her so much, that I was scared to ink her up.  I thought the sketch at Friday Sketchers would be a good time to try her.
The card is for Friday Sketchers # 115 and Pollycraft Monday Challenge - Theme - Faux or Real Stitches.  I went for faux stitching, although my pen seemed to be running out of ink, so maybe the photograph won't detail it enough.
Cardblank - Craftwork Cards
Cardstock - Doodlebug and Die Cuts with a View
Patterned Paper - Doodlebug and Die Cuts with a View
Image -Sugar Nellie
Ribbon - Doodlebug
Coloured with Distress Inks
Ticket sentiments - Sizzix - Have had these for a few years and only used them once before
Faux stitching - Marvey Pen
Letters (with) from stash
When I had used these ticket sentiments before, I was able to change the letters to another colour.  It wouldn't work for me this time, so went over the words with a brush marker and changed them to black instead.

P.S. Didn't think I was going to get the photograph uploaded as blogger has changed how to do this and it took me a minute or two to figure  out the new format.
Thanks for popping by and I hope you are not having the rain and thunder that we are having.  Sunday was definitely a blip, as it actually felt like summer,  for one day anyway.

Oh I just love this card the colours you've teamed her with are just fab, love the sentiment words they go really well with the image. Just want to say thank you for all your kind words on my blog they really do mean and a lot and thanks for the heads up on Bunny Zoe's Craft challenge being vintage I'll go and do that now.
