Just a few stitches....

We had a nice cruisy day today - Jas went off to Gym, Sophia slept in until 9, we did some shopping (Amber had money to burn!), had lunch out and then when we came home I did some scrapping. In all honesty it was too hot to do anything else. I joined in a challenge with the babes - we had to create a layout that had stitching on it. I was going to machine stitch but couldn't be bothered getting the sewing machine out - then I spent 45mins hand stitching! Here it is:I didn't originally create the doodled journalling box, it's a digital accent that I found on the internet a while ago - I just printed it out in the size I wanted and then traced it with my Zig pen. The butterfly was given to me by my mum. The Love You word is in bling, the flower are felt - adhered to the layout with 3D foam tape and then secured in place with a french knot. I hand doodled around the flowers. The pleats under "Love You" (which are a little hard to see here) were created with white paper and velum, and punched using the Threading Water Punch (I love that thing!) Here's some close-ups:
Here you can see the stitching and pleats much better (above)
Here you can see the flowers and butterfly better - and there is a tiny clear birdy to the far right.
