Crafting for all Seasons #35 Stitching real/faux

Time for a new challenge at CFAS and this time the theme is Stitching and we don't mind whether it's real or faux, we're  looking forward to seeing all your makes. We're being sponsored by Meljens, The Stamping Boutique and A Day for Daisies. I've used an image from Meljens on my card.

I've part digitally paper pieced the image then reprinted and coloured the mice with promarkers and decoupaged them. Card is simply finished with some faux stitching and pearls and a sentiment from my stash.

Do pop over to the challenge blog to see the rest of the girls inspiration, you won't be disappointed.

Tuesday Throwdown - use squares
Forever Friends - anything goes
Hooked on Challenges - let's celebrate
Lollipop Crafts - anything goes
Stamp and Create - stitch it up
