One Stop Craft Challenge DT Card

It is time for another One Stop Craft Challenge! The Challenge for week 129 is In Stitches. We want to see some stitching on your card. It can be either real or faux. The sponsor for this week is Diane's Digital Designs. You can win a fabulous prize from her shop! She generously gave the Design Team some images to work with. Here is my card.

I printed the digital image on the orange cardstock and added the saying by Queen Kat Design which is embossed with black embossing powder. The papers are Cosmo Cricket. The sewing machine is a die cut which was given to me in a kit. The stitching was done by first piercing the paper with a tool and then hand stitching it with black thread. The heart pins were made by adding 2 heart stickers to a stick pin. I added ribbons, a black sticker border and beads. Go check out the beautiful work from the Design Team this week! I am also entering it in the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge #108-Pile it On. You have to use at least 5 layers and I did stamp the saying! And I would also like to enter it in the Craft Your Passions Challenge # 55-Layers and Moving Along with the Times #96-Anything Goes. Thanks for stopping by!
