Challenge at The club of Tiets with Sugar Nellie Knitted with Love

Hi Everybody!!
Today I have a card to show you that's a little out of my comfort zone. Some of the Dutch girls who read my blog may know that I am a team member over at the Club of Tiets. It's a Dutch club where the members can participate in challenges but can also just show the things they have created and ask questions and stuff. Starting November first there is a new sketch up on the club and as a team member I have made a sample for the challenge. The sketch is by the "boss lady" Tiets and since her cards are usually with a lot of layers of paper so is the sketch. Not my usual style but I love a challenge so here is my result:
I have to admit I'm not used yet to all the paper but I don't hate my card... it's just not my usual :). The gorgeous stamp is by Sugar Nellie and she's called Knitted with love. I love her and the first moment I saw here I knew I had to use my paper bloc of Eline's Old Fashioned Nursery for it. I love the woolen pattern on one of the designs and I thought it would be perfect with the heart. The sentiment is by Nicole Verkooijen and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The tag is a DooHickey by Magnolia, the lace and the bandage are from my stash. The edges of the paper were first distressed with Distress Ink Walnut Stain, then I've heated some liquid applique to the corners and finally I added some Platinum Stickles here and there. Here is a close up of the image:
Isn't she cute? I used the Diamond Stickles on the image, colored her with Copics and 3D paper pieced her for extra dimension (what else is new). I've also added some Fun Flock again. Here is a side view so you can see the layers better:
And finally for the lovers of the little pieces:
Well hope you like my card! For the Dutch (and Belgian, and also some German and even an English) girls be sure to join us over at Tiets' if you want to give the sketch a go!

I'd like to enter this card into the Simon Says Challenge which is Anything Goes,
and in the Sweet Stampin' Challenge which is also Anything Goes.
