Friday Sketchers Challenge 20

First time I am taking part in this challenge.
This is a large card, A4 folded in half. I have never tried these before but I thought I'd experiment a bit.
The card itself was part of a bargain box with allsorts inside and it is slightly corrugated and dark aubergine in colour. The lilac paper is from own stash and stamped with the Grunge scrollstamp 019 from Gunhild
the bottom has deliberately not been stamped, the papers are from HOTP friendship 5203, the pink thread used in the left side is something maybe used for spirelli, with 2 white crochet flowers (thanks Elin
) I've sewn co-ordinating buttons in the middle and a sentiment with a cheap stamp I picked up from Tescos a while ago. The Sarah Kay 'sweet lili' image is just coloured with some metallic crayola pencils, her pretty bow glittered with crystal dust.small pin and pink ribbon stuck on with glue dot. To finish 3 clear flower gems from old QVC kit and white sakura gelly roll pen and black liner to accent and finish off. Hope you like and have a nice day!

I would also like this card to go for Vicki's 'pins and needles' challenge. It's her birthday soon and there are celebrations for reaching 20,000 hits. Wow!!!
