TSOT 443 - You are my Happy

Welcome to Try Stampin on Tuesday Challenge #443!

This week, there is a choice if you wish - there is a sketch and a technique. You can choose to do one or the other - or both! 

I decided to use both the sketch and add stitching to my card. I used a sheet of Graphic 45 paper with peacocks on it for the left side and a piece of Willow cardstock on the right. I hand stitched around the edges of those papers, changing the embroidery floss colour when the paper colours changed. I also stitched down the seam of those two papers, alternating the embroidery floss again. 

The peacock father paper was added along with the two banners. I chose to stamp a sentiment in a circle shape and mat it. I also added some hand edging along the two banners.
