One card for 3 challenges!

I've made this card to fill three challenges. I wanted to play with a Greetings Farm Stamp for Anyone for Anya and was lacking inspiration, and so I went in search of some Challenges. I found two more:

The Greetings Farm Farm Fresh Friday - Stitching 'faux or real' on two or more layers
Friday Sketchers - Fabulous sketch by Inge
Anyone for Anya - Anything Goes

I've used Amelia from the 'My Favourite Things' set from The Greetings Farm (Sentiment from same set) which I bought from Quixotic Paperie for my birthday with a gift voucher a lovely blog lady gave me. Coloured her with copics (listed below) and used some freebie papers that came with a magazine a wee while back - I believe they are My Minds Eye papers - 'Pretty Please' if I remember correctly - I lost the front cover.
Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the tulle bow I made (I think the tulle I picked up from local haberdashery store). The stitching I have done using a hand held sewing machine - I'm not very good at it, thus the wonky lines haha!
Copic colours:
Skin: Eoo, E50, E51, R11 & R20
Hair: E31, E35, E37
Clothes/Bow/Stars/Hair accessories: R32, RV42, B00, BG01, G99, R29
Shadowing: W1, W3, W7, 0

Some great news - Wild Orchid Crafts are starting up a Challenge Blog for Embellies - How cool is that, Check out the blog here... 

To celebrate they are having an amazing candy
Ends July 11th in prep for the challenges going live on the 12th!

Thanks for stopping, please leave a comment so I can come visit you in return
