Be Inspired # 71 - Loads of stitching!

Our challenge for you this week at Cuttlebug Challenge blog is to use loads of stitching on your card. You can faux stitch, use a sewing machine, or hand stitch...or any/all of the above :)

I do not own a sewing machine, but I have admired my friends' creations who do sew on their scrapbook LOs and cards. I often faux stitch (using a paper piercer and a black fine point marker or a white gel pen). For today's card I used a paper piercer and I hand stitched. I have these teeny tiny buttons that I thought would be perfect as "sprinkles" for a cupcake. I also knew these buttons matched my BasicGrey Marrakech papers. I think the Cuttlebug Moroccan Screen embossing folder is perfect with this collection of papers.

Sew what are you waiting for? Go make a a card, incorporate any form of stitching and include any Cuttlenbug product to create your card. The prize this week is 6 European folders by
