Truly Scrumptious Challenge #24-All Sewn up!

Hello and Happy Wednesday!
So today's card is for this week's Truly Scrumptious challenge.
Sharon was so sweet to use the sketch I made for the challenge-plus she wants us to add some stitching.
Well, of course I encountered some technical difficulties with my stubborn 35 year old singer sewing machine....so I had to settle for faux stitching instead. Luckily Close To My Heart has an awesome "stitches" stamp set, that I totally LOVE!

Both images I used are Magnolia, and I got them from Magnolia-lici0us! The absolutely BEST place to get Magnolia stamps. Diana, the owner is so sweet and she really does offer the BEST service. A lot of other stamp companies cater to the design team...but Diane really makes her customers the focus. :o)
I colored in Giggling Tilda and the Kitchen Bench with my copics and then air brushed the background. I pop dotted the bench and Tilda.
The paper is BoBunny-Kitchen Spice and so are the buttons are flowers.
The bling is prima
The brads are CTMH
The sentiment is MFT, stamped is CTMH Cocoa ink
My faux stitching is below the sentiment; stamped in cocoa ink as well.
Oh and here is the sketch for the challenge:


Make sure you check out the other designer's cards HERE, and have a fabby day!
