Give me wings


Do you sew on your cards? Do you want to try if you don't?
Come on over to Simply Scrapping Crafts for a brand new tutorial and challenge!
The card DT is hosting a new challenge every Wednesday, and this week  the challenge is SEWING!

I used 2 stamps by Unity and shades of grey and pink CS to create this one. Some simple distressed edges and a few stitches with my machine were all it needed to "finish it off".

If you love to sew on your cards, or if you like the look and want to give it a whirl, hop over to SSC and post your creation for a chance to win some fabulous prizes.

Thanks for stopping by today, I plan to play catch up on everyone's blogs ASAP, so keep an eye out!

I just love that metal thingamajig on the corner there... I'm guessing Tim Holtz? Love the sewing, too! I have yet to try that method!
