Crafty Cardmakers DT card

This week over at Crafty Cardmakers Challenge Blog we are looking for Stitching ~ either real or faux ~ so get your tiny needles, your machines or your pens out crafters.
I opted to use real stitching but wish I hadn't now as my stitching is awful - have to say its down to the fact that the tips of both my fingers I sew with are numb due to nerve damage and this is the first time I have used them since it happened - NO I DO NOT SEW WITH MY FINGERS - I use a needles but you all understood me!!

Using the beautiful Sarah Kay stamp (from my lovely friend Kathleen - thank you), I used PMs to colour her but wanted to keep the whole card simple so only used pink & grey. The backing paper is from Bearly Mine and I have to say I have fallen in love with it - isn't it stunning? The sentiment is computer-generated using Girls Are Weird font and I stitched the end of them together in grey thread.

Sarah Kay stamp coloured with Promarkers in Rose Pink and Cool Grey 1 & 2;
DP is freebie from Bearly Mine.

The card is on its way to Scotland (where my daughter is for the week) as she has been offered and accepted a place at The University of Hertfordshire to study Nursing on Secondment from her current job in the NHS starting in January. We are so pleased for her as she currently works as a Health Care Support Worker and is so good at her job she is wasted there and needs to further her skills and knowledge by doing this course.

As well as being a DT card this one is going into the following challenges:~
Passion for Promarkers Best Friends Challenge; and
