I'm In Stitches!

I gotta say that I'm a fan of my sewing machine :-)

So, when Saturated Canary Challenge Blog's second EVER challenge was to stitch up your project, I can't say that I was disappointed!

Challenge #2 is open until Wednesday, October 26 @ 12:00am EST.

Here's my take...

For my card, I've used the gorgeous Ragamuffin Violet. Which, by the way, I WON in the FIRST EVER challenge...just sayin'...I love when my stars are lucky!!!



I wanted the overall look and feel of an old photo, so I've colored her up in mostly black and white with just a bit of pink. I just love the pink!!!

I've layered vintage dictionary pages, sewing tissue and torn bits of white tulle on top of kraft and black cardstock for the base and finished it off with a bit of black stitching. I really like the contrast of the black stitching on the white paper :-)



And the cute little flower? Yep. I hand-stitched those beads on there. It is a stitching challenge, after all!!!



Thanks so much for stopping by!!!
