Papertake - Find Joy Everyday - Saturated Canary

I'm back again for my second DT card of the day, this time it's for Papertake Weekly.
This week we are very kindly sponsored by the Ribbon Girl and in order to be in with a chance of winning we would like to see stitching, real or faux on your projects.

Once again I have used the freebie digi from Saturated Canary called Boobie Love but this time I have coloured her with black skin. This was a first for me and was a nice change. I think I will try a few different skin colours over the coming weeks/months.
Here's my card and I've used a combination of a sewing machine stitch and faux stitching.

I've used Jillibean Soup Blossom pad, pink paper, cream and cranberry card.
As mentioned above, the image is from Saturated Canary and has been coloured with Copics.
Skin - E43,E53, E57, E59, lips R37,R22
Hair - BV29,C7,C5,C3, Prisma black pencil
Top - Pinks V000,V01,V12, w1,W3 
Trousers - B93,B45,B99
Embellishments - Tim Holtz metal leaves, pearl gems and tulle

I have also made my first paper rose with vellum. I seem to have a lot of vellum but it's something that I never use on a card. When I saw the technique shown on Create and Craft by a very talented lady who's name escapes me, I just had to try it. To make this I started with a circle of white vellum and to it I added a swirl of RV34 to give the flower a two tone effect, before cutting into a spiral shape.
It's nowhere near as good as the examples I see out in blogland so me thinks a lot more practise is needed, but this one has just passed my scrutinising to make it onto the card!
