Stitched Up.

I know,the same papers again! can't help myself though,I love using them,I've seen them on cards from all over the world,though I must admit,the lovely lined paper with the bunting only at the top did have me a bit foxed.That is until I saw this card by Claudia,I've borrowed the placing of this paper but played around with the rest of the layout. The lovely image is Molly Blooms, what a find,there's a set including 2 larger images,this one and a boy with a balloon,a little cupcake stamp and 4 different sentiments free with issue 80 of Simply Cards and Papercraft. This isn't a magazine that I'd normally buy but with these lovely stamps on and at only £3.99 I couldn't help myself.
Check out the stitching,I've been meaning to get my machine out and give it a go. The papers are Fine and Dandy paper pack by My Minds Eye,I've paper pieced the gift and coloured the rest of the image using Copics.
I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
