Papertake Weekly Challenge ,,,,, In Stitches ,,,,

Good Morning ,,,, hope all is well with you all :-) time is flying by as always and another week has come and gone !! time for a new theme on the Papertake Weekly Chellenge

This week we would like to see some SEWING ,,, get your machines or sewing needles out !! :-) You can fake it tho we won't mind :-) You could use an image with sewing in it, or stitched ribbon ,,, or just doodle some stitcing :-) lots of possibilities.

We are sponsored by Simon Says Stamp ,,, so a fab shopping spree on offer !! :-)

For my card I followed the fab sketch on the Truly Scrumptious Challenge who also had the optional extra of strawberries and cream :-)

I used my lovely Sew What House Mouse stamp, coloured with copics and the edges distressed with Tea Dye distress ink. The papers are from the Tim Holtz Shabby Vintage paper pad. The flower I made using the Tim Holtz Tattered Floral dies . I followed the technique shown on this fab video by
Christina , which you can see here
The sentiment is from a Simon Says Stamp exclusives set I also used a Martha Stewart leaf punch and a few Robins Nest dew drops :-)
