Allsorts "In Stitches"

A very good morning to you all.
This week it's my first turn to pick the theme at ALLSORTS and I'm a little nervous.
I chose "stitches" whether they are real or faux.
The design team have made some stunning samples using designs from this weeks sponsor

Why not pop over and take a look!

Here's my card

I must admit I felt a little out of my comfort zone using just flowers as the main image,
but I am happy with the end product!
xXx
I have used;
Fred she said -Tulip image,
Cuttlebug embossing folder - Forest  branches,
Martha Stewart - Arch lattice punch,
Nestabilies - Circles,
Label cut on cricut.
Kelly Panicci - Border stitches,
SU - sentiment
Image water-coloured with verscolor cubes

Thanks for looking
