DCM challenge - pins & needles

I bought the latest download from Funky Hand today. What delicious papers they are! You can find them here. I used them when making this weeks DCM challenge "pins & needles" - design a card using pins or needles of some sort.

















I made a brown square card blank & covered with one of the papers from paper blossom at Funky Hand. I then cut a strip of stripy paper (again paper blossom) and adhered it 2 thirds of the way down the card. I stamped Lola (Sugar Nellie) onto white card and coloured her with watercolour pencils, then partially cut her out and mounted her on more paper (paper blossom again) and then onto brown card. I doodled stitches around Lola. Next I cut out one of the patterned flowers and a "Happy Birthday" sentiment and mounted lower right. I edged the flower with glitter glue and attached some DCWV ribbon with a safety pin to the lower right of the card. Lastly a velvet Prima flower and jewel brad in the top right corner.
