Sew Charming at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges

Hi Folks
Well, another week has passed by and today sees the start of a new challenge over at Penny's Paper-Crafty challenges.
This week we have two fab sponsors:
Saturated Canary - 2 digi images of the winners choice
My Heart Pieces - 3 digi images of the winners choice
So why not pop over to the challenge blog and check out the awesome inspiration from the design team.  Then just get creating and upload an entry.
Our challenge theme this week is another easy one:

Sew Charming - use real/faux stitching and/or a charm

Here is what I created using an image from My Heart Pieces.

Apologies for the photo as it is a bit blurry.
I decided to go with the pink and girly look for this one.  I love the patchwork backing paper that I used.  Best of all it is full of faux stitching.  I also added faux stitching of my own.  I found a little pink rabbit charm in my stash which complemented the image on the little girls shirt nicely.  This card could suit several occasions but thought it would be quite cool for a Back to School card.  The little girl just looks like she is heading off for her first day at school clutching her trusty doll and backpack.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Fussy and Fancy - Back to School
Disdigidesigns - Back to School
Crafty Creations - Back to School
OSAAT - Use a digi
Ribbon Girl - Add pearls
Pile It On - For a princess
Love to Create - Back to School
Papertake - Anything Goes

Thanks for popping by and hope to see lots of your lovely creations over at Penny's.
