Now for my card I used the gorgeous LOTV stamp of Annabelle riding her bike with her little mate her dog. I used DPs from the new Kaisercraft collection 'Storyteller'. I love the combination of rich oranges and greens, its one of my fave colour combos. I and think that red hair suits Annabelle in this image. She is coloured with Copics
Now my fake sewing is on the top and the bottom of the cards. I ran my sew easy to puncture holes and used a black pen to create hoop like stitches. Gotta admit this was a hard one for me lol. I used a mix of flowers from WOC and Kaisercraft and lace from the shop above (Awesome collection Sandy!)
The sentiment is from La La Land Crafts and is very true.
I added a few pearl rhinestones to finish off.
Hope you like my card.
