Paper Sundaes Challenge #29 Stitching

Happy Sundae!  The theme/technique for this weeks Paper Sundaes Challenge #29 is STITCHING!  This week our wonderful sponsor is Belles & Whistles so I used the image "Li'l Miss Poppy" for my card.
I coloured with copics (E00, E11, E13, E31, E33, E35, E37, E40, E41, E43, E44, B21, B41, B45, R02, Y19, YG17).  All paper is by Kaisercraft which I distressed using Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Stormy Sky & Antique Linen.    I just did a simple stitch around the background of my card since this is the first time EVER machine stitching on a card & the first time I've used my machine in years!  It was fun so I'm sure I will attempt it again in the near future.  Other supplies used:  Scallop Circle & Circle Nesties, Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing Folder, and Wild Orchid Crafts flowers.  The sentiment is from Amy R's Big Words & Sentiments set.  Be sure to check out Paper Sundaes to see our new design team members (Fiona, France, Nana, Pattie & Wendy- hi girls), check out their blogs and give them a warm welcome.  These girls are so talented!  Can't wait to see what you come up with this week :)
