Something a bit different for me...

Over at Glitter n Sparkle this week,  the challenge is to use real or faux stitching.
I got this fab image to play with, from Sassy Studios...called Army Honey.

The backing papers are all digi papers I have had a loong time.
(The flower is digi too!)
I've never had the chance to use it before, but knew it would be just right for with this image.
The thing that took the longest about this card, was 
deciding which sentiment I would have on it.
I knew it wasn't going to be a regular birthday card, and wanted
something a bit different...and to fit with the image. 
The flower is decoupaged with a little glossy accents and 
Sassy's helmet, vest and pants are paper pieced.
Her skin tones and boots coloured with promarkers and her
hair is coloured with watercolour pencils. 
I drew on the faux stitching.

Having connection with our military through my own son and lovely niece I am sure you could not have created this very special birthday card with a more fitting sentiment Viv .... good advice for we civilians but exactly what is expected of our brave young people who commit to The Services.

I love your image and your paper piecing is stunning. Oh you have put so much thought and skills into this wonderful card.

Thank you for sharing this lovely card in our challenge this week. Ingrid xx ( OSAAT Team )
