A Foxy Yellow Ribbon Stitched up for the Sugar Bowl...

Good Morning Peoples!!
Hope everyone is well?? the rain has now stopped here, and its looking set to be a beauty!!
I'll be sat in my craft room though... no time for sunshine when the mojo is flowing!

This morning I've made a card to enter into a few challenges...
Really enjoying getting into challenges again!! but I always forget to check back to see if I've won anything!! LOL!!

Right, heres this mornings card...

I've followed Erikas rather gorge sketch over at the sugar bowl...
its a fabby sketch to play around with... I've rotated it...


The Theme over there is 'make your own flowers'
So thats what I did!
They are made using Canvas... using the old rolled up spiral routine...
then I popped a button in the middle of each.
They are backed by handcut flowery shapes from MME paper
I did make 3, but just as the card was coming together nicely... one of them ended up on the floor, and I stood on it when I was rolling out my chair!! GRRRRRR!!
anyhoo, stuck on a paper one instead...

I've used my fav image in the world... Foxy 
Coloured her with promarkers...
I've used her quite a lot actually... are we sick of seeing her? NOPE!!
The patterned paper is MME
And I've used Kraft (thanks Emma!!!) and white canvas as the main background...
the 'hill' is cut from DCWV old world paper

Added a bit of yellow trim at the bottom,
a 'thanks a bunch' sentiment
(a pressie from the gorgeous Maria..not sure of the make sorry)
and an extra button (you can still see the wet glue OMG!! ignore that!)
and some faux stitching here and there...
The HUGE bow was actually an after thought (I think it shows actually!)

phew... did you get all that??

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges...

Simon says stamp 'a stitch in time'
Passion for Promarkers 'tie a yellow ribbon'
and
PTW 'Anything goes' (optional buttons)

okay, I think thats me done...
off to link up...

Thanks for looking!!
Paula
