Taylored Expressions Sketch #97

Time for another one of Taylored Expressions Friday sketches. I also did some stitching on my card which is this weeks challenge by JUST US GIRLS
This is my card:
I almost never use stitching on my cards.....mostly just too lazy ;0 Even with this stitching if you look closely you will see I used some rub-0ns. These are from the Martha Stewart collection. Super easy to use. All of the Papers, ink & stamps are PTI, I colored my image with copics, and use a flattened bottle cap that I punched a hole in the center with my giant crop-a-dial. Then I took a piece of ribbon from my Michael's stash & threaded it through & tied a pretty little bow. I think that about says it all for this one. Now time for football for the rest of today & tomorrow. Maybe I can color some images while I am watching :) Thank you for your visit!!

Such a pretty card Gwen! I had to click & enlarge to really see that your stitching is rub-ons! It looks real & had me fooled! Awesome job! Thank you so much for playing along with Just Us Girls! I hope to see more of your creations in next week's color challenge!

I am normally not a big fan of purple, but this is gorgeous! The shade of purple is perfect here, and the rub-on stitching is the perfect addition! Great job with TES97!
