Stitched up!!

Here is the latest creation! I have seen lots of these on a many blogs and i just love them. As i was half way through the stitching i checked the Totally Tilda blog and the new challenge is "Stitching". Maybe it was crafters intuition...but lets face it, it was probably just a bit of luck!

The paper i have used has a story behind it, its actually wallpaper! ssshh...I couldnt resist taking a sample when i seen it on the shelf in our local DIY store! I read a long time ago about a crafter who always collects wallpapers and pain charts etc to use on her cards but i wasnt really sure if the wallpaper would do the job! Well it certainly did! It was really expensive designer stuff, £49.99 a roll so it was really thick and the flocking is lovely. The picture doesnt do it justice! I only took a little bit so thats it used! 
The flower is one i made myself. I cut hearts out on my Cricut and curled the edges over and arranged one overlapping the next. Turned out great. I covered the flower in Glossy accents and some MS glitter to give it the "wet" look. 
The swirls are cut from my cricut story book cartridge onto silver paper. The stitching is also silver thread, again the photo doesnt show it up well. 

My Tilda image is coloured in with promarkers. I used all my "Cool Grey" shades to give it a black and white effect. That is my first try of that so could have been better! I added a few gems to add some bling!
The challenge at Creative Card Crew is "Sparkle and Shine" so i have entered into that with my shiny flower and sparkling gems!
Here are links the the challenges i have entered into;
