The Paper Shelter Challenge #294 - Stitching Faux or Real

Good Morning and welcome to my DT post for the new challenge from The Paper Shelter. This week our challenge is to use some stitching either real or faux. I don't use stitching very often on my cards because I just cannot use a sewing machine at all (I have a mini one from Hobbycraft somewhere that I could never stitch in a straight line with, so gave up on it!) and I cannot be bothered to do it by hand as it takes me so long!

Anyway here is my card using the adorable Cool Lolly Updated and dug out some of my old papers from Lili of the Valley before they stopped producing them. I added faux stitching to all my patterned paper layers as well as joining the pierced holes on my image panel. My ribbon also has some faux stitching on too!


Stamps: Cool Lolly Updated from The Paper Shelter

Papers: So Saffron & Whisper White both from Stampin' Up, Country Meadow Patterned Papers from Lili of the Valley, Super Smooth Card from That Craft Place, Card Blank from stash
