Sew it up with Creative Knockouts

Hi everyone

There's a new challenge at Creative Knockouts.

Our theme for this week is 'Sew it up'. We'd like to see real or faux stitching on your cards.
Here's my little piece of inspiration...

We're being sponsored by the fabulous Lacy Sunshine, who very kindly gave me this image to play with. It's called Eleanor's Heart Balloons and can be found here. I've coloured her using Copics and added glamour dust to her glasses. The backing paper is from the Party Paws cd, matted with black card. I've added faux stitching using a black fine liner. 

I added some ribbon and buttons from my stash and finished off with a Cheery Lynn die cut balloon. The sentiment is LOTV with a hand doodled heart.

I hope you'll pop over to the challenge and take a look. We'd love you to join in. You could be lucky enough to win 3 gorgeous Lacy Sunshine digis...

I would like to enter this for the following:-

Thanks for visiting. I hope to see you again soon.
Hugs Helen xx
