Tickled Pink Stamps for Shabby Chic Card

Hi! I had a quick play in the craft area before work this morning, and really went outside my comfort zone.... (okay, so it's not purple.... so not completely outside my comfort zone) come see -
I started out colouring my image, which is from Tickled Pink designs. I found her 'trench coat' really hard to colour, so decided to paper piece it instead. I have used my Stampin' Write Markers and some retired Stampin' Up! DSP for the coat. I cut her out and then built my card. The base is So Saffron, layered with Crumbcake which I ran through the Big Shot with a circles embossing folder. I sponged the edges, and then sewed around it (messily.) The centre panel is a piece of Pretty in Pink layered up with some patterned paper from Echo Park (I think) and some lace which I have stitched in place. I pierced two holes in the top of the centre panel and threaded some twine through and tied a bow. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up and is called Friendly Messages and has been stamped on to a Spellbinders Label. I added 4 little pearls to finish off this card. 
I am entering this into two challenges, the first is the Tuesday Morning Sketches sketch and next up is The Corrosive Challenge 'shabby chic' challenge
