UK Stampers Challenge E for Embroidery

Ooops! Slightly late with this one as I haven't done cross stitch since my girls were little and the eyesight is not so good these days! Intended to finish by yesterday teatime but the light got the better of me and had to do the embroidery in bright sunlight at lunchtime lol.
The tag itself is coloured with Distress inks (you know how I love these) in Scatttered Straw, Vintage Photo and Worn Lipstick. I stamped images from Paper Artsy Buttons Plate 3 at the top and bottom in Versafine Sepia ink.
I cut out a piece of blue chintzy fabric with pinking shears and stuck on the tag. I took a piece of Aida and made a cross stitch border with blue stranded cotton. I frayed the edges and stuck this on the fabric.
I used an image from Dezinaworld, the Sew 1 Collage sheet which fit the theme perfectly and stuck her on the tag with a piece of braid across the bottom.
I stamped the sewn art piece from the Paper Artsy set in sepia ink and coloured it with Worn Lipstick and Broken China Distress inks. I cut it out with deckle edged scissors and stuck under the image. Finally, I used Hero Arts LL032 Pixie Letters and sepia ink to stamp embroidery and cut the word out. I then inked it as before and stuck to the tag.
