ODBDSLC213 Week 1: In Stitches


The first challenge this month at ODBD Shining the Light Sketch Challenge is to have stitching (real or faux) on your cards.  I must admit I immediately thought "FAUX!" because I have a hard time sewing in a straight line... and if I'm using lovely designer paper, do I really want to mess it up?!  But since this is a challenge, I dusted off my machine.  I went for a zig zag around the edges - it seemed safer that way!  The Doily die is so pretty and intricate I didn't want to cover it up so I left the design pretty simple.  Hope you take up the challenge too!  And make sure you check out my fellow DT sisters- there are some serious seamstresses in that group!
