Patchwork...

Yay!!!! Its the weekend!
Todays card is using the fab Teen Fairy Mia from Mo Manning.
I used my sewing machine to create a patchwork backing from lots of little bits of scrap pink paper.  Quite pleased with the results however still not happy with the stitches and the tension - looks really wonky and uneven!
I coloured the image with copics and added some stickles for sparkle!
The seam binding is from Wild Orchid Crafts and the card candi and sentiment are from Craftwork Cards.






I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Mos Digital Pencil - Patchwork
Jellypark Challenges - Add Pink and a ribbon
Flutterby Wednesdays - Anything Goes (fairy)
Dis Digi Designs - Girly Creations
