Let's go fly a kite

Yes, sing along now. My lovely friend Lisa gave me this stamped image and I have been longing to use him. I made an 8 x 8 card as the image is large and I wanted to use the fab sketch at Crafts 4 Eternity as I can;t resist a sketch with lots of layers. I coloured the Penny Black image with Promarkers and now I have some fine nibs was able to do some faux stitching in brown. Loving these fine nibs. Papers are HOTP 12" pad mixed jewels. I thought this image would go well with bunitng, well any excuse, and added some Craftime geometric buttons. Promarkers, fine nibs and buttons are al available at Crafty Emma's Store. Emma offers fantastic service. I placed an order on Tuesday for various items and they arrived this morning.

I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Ready-Teddy-Go Buttons and bows
Penny Black Anything Goes
Cupcake Sew Mad
Sarah Hurley Stitched Up
