43 We're in stitches!

Hello everyone! Today is Be Inspired at Cuttlebug Challenge Blogspot and this week we are in stitches! We were challenged (and so are you) to create with lots of stitching.


Who says you need designer paper? I made this card in green and pink and stitched leaves in several places. I then colored in one side of each 'stem' with a Copic marker. The middle panel is Cuttlebug embossed Core'dinations paper.

This flower image is from The Angel Company. I colored it with Tombow watercolor markers, cut it out and raised it off the main card.
The inside and the box also have a couple of stems of leaves.
Thanks for visiting. Head over to Cuttlebug Challenge Blogspot to see what the rest of the design team created. You will be very impressed and inspired to use that sewing machine!
