Oh The Places You'll Go {Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge #115}!

Hi everyone!  Happy Saturday!

I am so excited to be a Guest with Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps this month!  YAY!!  I have a card for today's challenge on the Kraftin' Kimmie Blog, Challenge #115!  This week Sandie Dunne has challenged the Krafty Girls (and me!) to use Pearls and Pins!  FUN!

For my card today, I've used the darling Bookworm Jaime...isn't she cute?  I stamped her, colored her with Copic Markers and then fussy cut her out.  The layout is Jen's Deconstructed Sketch, DS38, and the patterned papers are all from the new On The Bright Side One from My Minds Eye.

I stitched around the circle...stitch by stitch, and added more sewing around the card as well.  The Kraft panel was embossed with the Seeing Spots Embossing Folder.  I added a fun banner with the Mix & Match Banners Die-Namics from MFT and made it longer to fit the sketch.  The flower was created with the Flower and Leaf Trio Die-Namics, also from MFT.

I added some pearls to her sweater with a Viva Pearl Pen in Cream, as well as a pearl in the flower center.  I also added two stick pins into the flower...I have been hoarding these forever...it feels good to actually use them!

Here is a closeup of the flower with the pearls and pins...the pins even have pearls.  That's just how I roll (lol).

Thanks SO much for stopping by!  Please head on over to the Kraftin' Kimmie Blog to play along and check out what the Krafty Girls have come up with for this challenge!
