Totally Ladybug Tuesday - Phoebe and Olivia

Hello to all my lovely followers I hope you are all doing ok.
The challenge over at Totally Ladybug Tuesday is to have Stitching on your card - faux or real.

This is a first for me to attempt real stitching on a card but thought I would give it a go.  I think I need a sharper tool to make the holes and then it would be a much neater result. 
I have used one of the fab new images that have been released at Ladybug Crafts Ink which I won on one of their challenges.  The image is Phoebe and Olivia which I think is so sweet.  It is coloured with quite a mixture of mediums, Promarkers, Copics and Chalks and finished with Stickles.
The paper I have had for a while and can't remember where I got them they have a pearlescent finish to them.
The Ribbon is from Papermania and the sentiment came with the Phoebe and Olivia Stamp.

Thanks for popping over and enjoy the rest of your weekend.
