I am very much enjoying this Thursday for two reasons; firstly because I have the day off work (and Friday too!) and secondly because it is time for a new challenge at In The Pink. Pink always makes me happy :-)
So, our theme this week is...
STITCHING (real or faux)
This was right up my street of course as I very rarely make a card without stitching, all done by hand. If you want to see my little tutorial on how I do my stitching then check it out here.
I had a go at leaving white highlights in the hair to increase the contrast and add more shine and think it turned out pretty well.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges;

The rest of the Pink Ladies have been busy creating some lovely stitched creations for your inspiration so do pop over to In The Pink to see them.
