Colour Create, Dotties World and Di Hickman Challenges

The Challenge on Dotties World this week was set by Adele and she said:

This week I want to see stitching, hand or machine - but REAL stitching, no faux stitching like I am so fond of in my work!You must of course use one of more of the many, wonderful Charmed Downloads but the rest is up to you.

I used the sketch from Di Hickmans Wednesday Challenge

The image is a pre-coloured one from the Rock N Roll collection from Charmed Downloads
I used my little Pro-Craft sewing machine to stitch on the red card at the top and to stitch a red line around the image in the corner.
The Ribbon was from my stash.
I finished the card with my White Glaze pen, but annoyingly I smudged it at the end

We would like you to make your card or project this week using the colours red, white and blue.There is an extra option available which you can use if you wish, although this isn't compulsory. This week's option is 'Holidays and Travel' and I hope that the wonderful Design Team cards will give you the inspiration you need.
I made this little suitcase to hold a gift card in
The template came from Paperthreads and was cut using my Craft Robo
I used my Tria pen to add the faux stitching to the suitcase
Plus I added a label and the ribbon
Thanks for the Challenge to all three sites and do check them out as there are some amazing creations on them.
Sorry to add three together this week but I have been running out of time again this week!!

Great card - so unusual and great use of the colours.
Stop being so impatient (like me - lol) and let things dry before handling them!!!

Oh! I'm all excited! I love seeing cards that are different shapes. I love the middle section - that is a great way to add a gift card. Fab use of the colours. Thanks for joining the Colour Create Challenge.
