Charlotte Stitched Easel Card!!

Hey Everyone!!
I usually don't blog on sundays for some reason... BUT today I played along with 2 AMAZING challenges!! Kraftin Kimmie Stamps Blog has a challenge with STITCHING!! AND Crazy4Challenges #10 has everyone making an Easel card!
Kraftin Kimmie Stamps is sponsoring the C4C10 challenge so I figured it is a perfect time to play along!! :D
I LOVE Kimmies stamps, the Moonlight Whispers line sucked me in Immediately!!
I used Charlotte, and I have been having fun FAUX quilting. All the stitching is drawn on there (shhh...) I took my piercing tool and went across all the 6 small 1.5 x 1.5 squares and pierced holes, then I took a dark grey colored pencil (a dark gel pen would work better) and connected the holes in a zig zag pattern, same for the red and white polka dotted panel on the bottom panel.

and I LOVE crazy4challenges blog too, those ladies keep us on our toes with the challenges!
HERE are instructions on how to make an Easel card, not as hard as I thought!! I made mine 5x5 to fit Charlotte well. You just adjust the total size to 5x10. easy peasy!
SO i jumbled them all together and here is what I came up with!!
This card is for a super special friend who has been "knocking my socks off"!! She should know who she is :D

Stamps Used: Charlotte- Kraftin Kimmie Stamps, sentiment-October 09KOM-Unity Stamp company
Paper Used: June Bug-BasicGrey, enchanted evening, vintage cream, pure poppy-Papertrey Ink
