Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge--Stitch it Up!!

Are you ready for a fun Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge?  Our super talented hostess, my sweet friend Pat, has chosen the theme-- Stitching.  Here is what I created:

To be honest, I think this would have been perfect for last week's CAS card. LOL  But I thought this image, called Queen of Hearts would be fun for the Stitching challenge as I had lots of room to sew.
The image was colored with copic markers and then I used a zip zag stitch to sew the gold layer to the red base.  I sewed with a straight stitch and added a zig zag single stitch every once in a while for a little added interest. :)  I have my little craft sewing machine right under my desk and just have to lift it up to use it, should do it more often. :)
I kept the embelllishments to a minimum only adding a band of red gingham ribbon and a bow, and my favorite, a fan of tiny playing cards, which were from a deck of cards given to me by one of my daughters. Aren't they cute!!!
Be sure to stop by the Challenge blog and check out the rest of the DT cards and drop by the Digital Pencil Store and check out the darling new Valentine kids Mo has created.  Love em.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful creative day.
