A Triple Challenge

I've been racking my brain to decide what to do for the Case Study
challenge, which is to create a card using our signature style!
I nearly entered the card I made for this weeks's Tuesday Trigger, but
I wanted to make it specifically for the Case Study challenge.
However,  I've also been tossing ideas around for the Playdate Cafe challenge
 and then I saw the challenge at City Crafters challenge, which was to
make a card using this image from the Graphic Fairy and I new what I wanted
to do.
 I've realised my style is to include an image, with a bit of patterned
paper and some stiching and to include an embellishment.
It is usually clean and simple, mainly because I don't seem
to have the knack of clustering elements.

The red paper is from Websters Pages (it was pink but I used a bit of distress ink
to make it red). The mint coloured paper is from Kaisercraft. The image is of course from
the Graphic Fairy. I altered the colour of it it by  taking out some of the saturation
and then using copic markers. I printed it on canvas, twice, cutting one out and layering
the image. I love the look and feel of the canvas. The pin and ribbon are from my stash.
Here are the links for each challenge:-
