Stitch it Up at Sassycheryls!

That’s right……this weeks challenge is to do stitching either real or faux on your card.

Here is my card-


When it comes to stitching, I would rather do it by hand, then I know the line is straight. ( that’s my OCD kicking in!).  I guess I really need to practice more with the sewing machine.

As an added touch I sewed love knots on each scallop on the top.

Here is the inside of the card-


The image for this card is called Marlene’s Attitude
  • SU paper, so saffron, white and K&Company DP
  • Paper piercer, quilt thread, plastic flowers, SU scalloped border punch, round punch, paper doily, dimensional, copic markers.
Now head over to The Sassycheryls Challenge Blog to see what the rest of the team have created.
