The second set of pics here is for the Monthly Challenge. The challenge presented to us was to sew on our LO, card, or altered project or faux stitching. This here is my creation. This is a 4 x 6 card. I cut the flowers & leaves on my cricut, the stems are just 1/4 inch strips that I curled by wrapping them around a pencil. The stamped image is a Studio g stamp.
Here's a close up of my sewing...it's not too great, but hey, it adds some character right! The basket weave is material stitched to cardstock. It made it a little easier to stitching the material to the cardstock then glueing it down --didn't have to worry about the material bunching up.
On a side note I just started joining in on the challenges at the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog. One of the new design team members, Ann, is offering some "blog candy" in honor of her becoming a new design team member. Stop by and leave her some love and join in on the challenge on the 14th to try and win yourself a new cuttlebug "Treetops" cutting and embossing set--it's so cute!

Have a very scrappy day!
