Sewing Mouse

This post will be rather brief tonight as for some unknown reason I fainted this afternoon, so am feeling a tad washed out. The last time that happened to me was about 20 years ago when I had Glandular Fever (but didn't know I had it at that stage). 

It is once again time for another challenge at Penny's Paper Crafty, and our theme for you this time is that you have to choose 
ribbon, lace, eyelets, brads, card candi, charms, flowers, 
feathers, buttons, gems or pearls.

Wow, that gives you plenty of scope, doesn't it.

We have 2 lovely sponsors this week, and they are:-

I was asked to use a QKR image, so I chose Digi 18210 Sewing Mouse. I always
love using QKR images, they are so quirkily (is that a word?) cute.
The cotton reels on the paper are aqua, tan, brown, and cream, so I went 
with those colours for my colouring of the image, and my embellishments.
The 3 embellies I chose are flowers, card candi and ribbon.

A closer look at our cute little seamstress.
