SCRS Challenge #23 - Faux or Real Stitching

Time for the Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps weekly challenge.  This week's challenge is a is to use faux or real stitching.  This was a big challenge for me as I don't sew.    For all the challenge details visit the SCRS blog


Here is my card and my tiny attempt at sewing on a card:  
Slightly open to show the fold:


Laying flat:




I paired up Caroling Josh  with Christmas Tree Ruby, I thought they would look cute caroling together.  
I created a Z fold card and used the fun American Crafts papers in the background.  I had first counted on my ribbon being the stitching.  After I finished the card I decided to take a piece of felt and hand stitch little ear muffs for Josh. :)  The scarf was cut from the same felt to add a nice fuzzy touch. They are both colored using watercolor pencils and a waterbrush.


The design team has some sweet projects to share:


Thanks for stopping by!
