Portrait

I was so lucky to win a gift certificate from Sassy Studio and this is my first time using one of these images. I just couldn't resist this portrait and I'm sure I'm going to use this image many more times in the future. I colored the image using Promarkers and added some pearls as well.
https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-owTthkq69CQ/VsDCNeh8nSI/AAAAAAAANb8/cP0jcU8A9eM/s1600/ssc120.pngI was inspired by the sketch over at Sunday Stamps. I used left over pieces of DPs from different brands, stitched oval and banner dies from Dienamics. My old sewing machine couldn't do this type of zigzag stitches, but my new machine does - very happy with that:)


This card is for:
Sunday Stamps - #120 Sketch
I love Promarkers - #302 Bingo (die cut+free+pearls - as free element I've chosen stitching)
Addicted to Stamps and More - #181 Anything Goes
Crafty Cardmakers - For a Special Woman
Craft Rocket Challenges - #9 Mother's Day/Female
