DYSU Challenge #65

Good Morning,
It's time for another challenge over at  Do You Stack Up? and our theme this week  is "Sew It" -  real or faux we don't mind as long as we can see a stitching theme to your card.

 Our sponsors this week are......

Dearie Dolls Digi Stamps - Winner's choice of 4 images

Michelle's Scrapbooking and More - $10 Gift Certificate

Amber Ink - $15 Gift Certificate

I have used this sweet little image from Dearie Dolls called "Friends Needlework" and have included a fair amount of hand-stitching on the card.  I have also distressed the edges of the paper in an attempt at making it look a bit like frayed fabric - lol !! And I have used a piece of embroidery linen behind the mounted image.

 Close-up detail of my stitching.

Medium - Promarkers and chalk
Papers - Magnolia "Sweet Rainbow"
Ribbon and buttons - Papermania Capsule Collection
Linen fabric -  stash from my cross stitching days!

So that is me done now for a little while. Please do take a look at the rest of the DT's brilliant work over at the Do You Stack Up? blog and be inspired to join our fun challenge. There are some great prizes up for grabs.

I shall see you all later, as soon as I have completed my move and been re-connected to the internet.
Happy Crafting
Denise xx

Your stitching is amazing!! The linen was a very cool idea and is perfect with that image. Beautiful card!

Though I love to see the stitching I am always a bit scared of trying it I cheat and make short pencil lines to look like stitches coward aren't I?
