Challenge 35 at Creative Inspirations.......

.............. is stitching - faux or real.  We have two fabulous sponsors for this challenge, firstly we have Whimsy Stamps and secondly we have the fabulous Glitterbabe.

Well, sewing is definitely not my strong point so I went for the easy option and chose faux stitching.  I chose to make a card for my SIL's birthday which is on 1 June.  I chose an image from Bugaboo because I am really into their images at the moment.  So here is the card I made:
And a close up of the image:
For the backing papers I chose a stripy paper from a Daisy and Dandelion pad called Picnic Patch and then added four triangular papers from a Hot Off The Press book called Tag Art.  I added a small flower using two flower shapes which I cut out with my Cuttlebug and added a pearlised flower shape which I think I recycled from a shop bought card I received a while back.
I am quite pleased with how it turned out and might just use this faux stitching effect again on future cards.
