Dutch Dare ~ Stitching Real or Faux /Butterfly Babe

Hi Guys!
This is a new week of challenges at Dutch Dare! 
Our theme this week is
Stiching Real or Faux
and we are being sponsored by the Stamping Boutique, which has some pretty nice stuff so you'll want to play along for a chance to win!
I am doing one of my fave things and that is coloring on Kraft again!

My image is Stamping Boutique and my papers are K&Co.
Isn't she a cutie?

And lookie here! Its a rare occurance, I know, but I actually decorated the inside of a card! 
Yay me!
( I didn't really sign the card, that's just my watermark. lol)

So I hope you can play with us this week!
Take care and happy crafting!
PS) The Dutch Dare post goes live around 12:00 EST so don't panic if you don't see it up yet. I'm just a tad early today. :-)

I would like to enter this in :
FAb N Funky: Warm toasty colors

Your card is beautiful. I stopped by their site a little while ago, and I did wonder what was up. I really like how well you coloring looks on kraft. You've definitely conquered that technique. Hugs, dj

When I saw the theme, I was sure you like this a lot. I was right. :) Enjoying the details of coloring, water plants (what ever they are), water, grass.

But girl's forehead, headscarf and dress are my favourite this time :)

This is stunning. I love the look of colors on Kraft paper - you've just topped everything with this one though. Love the stitching - a perfect finishing touch. Thanks for sharing your talent with us at the StampFairy challenge. Hope you'll return and play with us again and again.

I absolutely love this Dorcas! The image is so sweet, love that stitch too!! Awesome work!

That is a HUGE butterfly!!! lol I really like the image though, beautiful nostalgic feel.
The stitching adds so much definition to the cards. I'm jealous.
And I think your layouts are very interesting and much more fun than mine. Seems we always like what somebody else does, lol
