This weeks Saturday Challenge was to incorporate stitching into your project. I would have loved to have used real stitching but my sewing machine is grounded and in disgrace for bad behaviour! It mushed up and ruined 3 cards last time it was let out from under it's cover so I thought I would leave it there for a day when I have more patience. I have used one of my Penny Black stamps called "The Essentials" and have coloured it with my watercolour pencils. The papers are from the Stampin' Up! "Sweet Always" range and the cardstock is SU "chocolate chip". I have made a little pull out section and added a greeting using my new "Oval all" stamps and punches! I appreciate you must be bored of my ovals by now lol but they are so handy, I would love it if they could bring out a rectangle set next! Finally I added faux stitching on the front with Doodlebug sew easy rub ons and I doodled the stitching on the inner section with a white pen.
