MFP Sketch With a Twist Challenge 113 - Faux or Real Stitching!

This week's SWAT Challenge is to use the following sketch and the TWIST is to use faux or real stitching on your card.  (I cannot do a single real stitch and my faux stitching looks a lot like what my real stitching would look!)
For my card, I flipped the sketch.  I used a Spellbinder Piercablilities die on the bottom to create a decorative edge.  I used Kraft Cardstock.  I stamped the image panel using the stamp and sentiment from the MFP Medallion stamp set using Crumb Cake ink.  I then stamped the image im black from Nature's Brushstrokes over the Medallion.  I used a ruler to add dots using a black pen down the side and corners of the stamped panel, then I used the pen to connect the dots with the hope of making it look like stitching (looked much better before I connected the dots!)  The buttons are from my stash.
We hope you'll play along with our SWAT Challenge #113 this week.  If you do, you'll be entered to win a stamp set from Mark's Finest Papers!

  1. I've really enjoyed getting caught up on your blog. You have so many beautiful cards. Love the paper piercing on this one and the soft colours.
