Crafty Purple Frog Challenge - March 2017 - Lovely ladies

It is time for another challenge over at the Crafty Purple Frog Challenge Blog.

The topic for this month is "lovely ladies".
 For my card I have used a Ching-Chou Kuik digital stamp called "Glowing Dazzle".  I have coloured my image in with Promarkers and edged around the image with Tim Holtz's Gathered Twigs distress ink.

The backing papers I have used are from First Edition Storyteller paper pad.  These are a beautiful quality of papers.  I used the pattered piece and tore around the edges and inked with the Gathered Twigs distress ink.  With a piece of purple paper from the pad I used a pricking template, pierced the holes and then hand-stitched with orange embroidery thread.  I used two matching pieces of purple and orange card and put them through my Crafter's Companion Textures Distress embossing folder and then inked over with my Gathered Twigs distress ink.

I have finished the card off with a Dovecraft "Friends" stamped sentiment and some Dovecraft Bohemian sequins.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
