Fairy Stitches

Hello 🙂  I think this card just blasted me out of my little trend of CAS!! Lol!!  I’ve had this image for a few years, it’s by Cootsy Creations, and was available in the Stichy Bear shop, which is closed now, sadly.  I colored this sweet little fairy up with my SN and Copic markers.

  I knew just the papers I was going to use for her – I purchased a bunch of sewing themed DPs at a Dollar store (!!!!) while on a girls’ weekend at the spa this summer.  These papers are double sided, and a lovely weight, which make it an extra value.  Once I started layering, you can’t see that the base layer actually has some sparkle on some of the odd spools.  Anyhow, I used both sides of one of the sheets here, and took my sewing machine (which has an issue with tension), and stitched around them.  I recently got this old fashioned sewing machine die from AliExpress, on an impulse, and was wondering where I’d ever use it……lol, wouldn’t ya know…..perfect with this 🙂  Since I was on a real roll, using some of the neglected sewing themed stash I have, I kept digging, and found the tape measure ribbon.  Of course I had to sew a few buttons in the bow centre!! The one corner of the image seemed naked and begging for “something” – so I poked a few dressmaker pins through…..keeping with the theme, ya know?  The sentiment is computer generated, and cut with a fishtail banner die which I think is from Elizabeth Craft (but I’m not 100% sure, because I’m old, lol).

I’d like to enter this in the following:
