Gem of a Challenge Stitching Real or Faux

 Good Morning All, I hope you are all keeping well, sorry I haven't been round very much over the last few days, we have had a family Wedding and some family members staying with us, so its a busy time, Today we have a New challenge for you at Gem of a Challenge and this time we want to see stitching it can be real or Faux,, I am not very good at this sort of thing so I have gone for Faux stitching, the gorgeous image I have used is called Shopping Emma, you can find her Here I have coloured her with my Graph'It markers, the backing paper was a freebie froma Magazine the flowers, pins and gems are all from my stash.
You have two weeks to enter, You do not have to use Pink Gem images but we do love to see them, all you need to do is follow the theme, the Prize for our winner is a choice of 2 gorgeous Digi stamps, I do hope you will join in with us, I look forward to seeing what you create.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges.
