A Spoon Full of Sugar - Get Your Sewing On!

I hope all my American friends had a wonderful and safe 4th of July, we enjoyed hot Texas weather, a good brisket and of course a few cold ones!
Now the Holiday is over it's back to regular programming and as it's Tuesday that means a new card for the A Spoon Full of Sugar challenge!
This week is a super easy one, we just want to see some stitching on your card and it can be machine, hand or faux, it's up to you!

Card Recipe:
Image - Gardening Kaela
Medium - Copic Markers
Paper - Webster's Pages Collection
Border Punch - Martha Stewart Deep Edge Garden Trellis
Die Cut - Oval Square Label
Ribbon - The Whimsey Cottage
Gems - Treasures by Shabby Chic
Roses - Wild Orchid Crafts
Sentiment - Birthday Wishes by Karen Foster Design

I think this little image of Kaela is so sweet and to finish it off I drew in a little wall for her to be sitting on.
Gardening was (and still is) such a big part of my life, learning all about the seeds and plants and trees from my Nana and it's nice to have such a cute card to remember those moments by.
And another reminder of Nana is this challenge, stitching, as she was a super seamstress in her day so Nana, this one's for you!
Please come along and share your stitched creation with us this week at A Spoon Full of Sugar.
