Sweet Pea Stampers Challenge

This week's challenge over at the Sweet Pea Stampers is "stitching - faux or real".
I've used an Avec stencil to emboss and stitch the pale pink pearlescent card. I've added beads from My Mind's Eye. The Sweet Pea image is Dance of the Butterfly, this has been stamped with Memento and coloured with Copic markers. The moon has been glittered with glamour dust and I've used pastel pencils in the background. I've used a butterfly punch from Martha Stewart and the paper is from K & Co.
This card also fits in with the challenge over at Crafty Creations where they would also like to see some stitching this week.

I can really appreciate all the time that went into designing this beauty.

Especially love the dry embossing and the fan stitching with the little bead added! I recently bought the stencils to try this effect, looks wonderful!
