One hefty imaginary friend

Today's card is created using image from Hambo stamps, they have loads of fun stamps and hilarious sentiments. It cracked me up the moment I saw it and I knew exactly what I was going to do with it.
I coloured the image with Copics, no glitter or glaze involved - yes, I know, it can happen to me sometimes!
The papers are from my favorite MME Quite Contrary collection. It's an obsession, what can I say! I didn't use any embellishments except some stickers and die-cuts from the same collection.
All the stitching is done by hand using embroidery thread and the sentiments were created in the computer and printed straight onto stickers, then heat-embossed. The grass is made with MS border punch.
I would like to enter this card into following challenges:
Stamptacular - sewing
Crafty Catz - sewing
Lili of the Valley - Here Comes Summer
Mercy's Tuesday Challenge - Sketch inspiration

Thanks for looking and happy crafting!

Hugs
Annika
