Timeless Tuesday #108 - Stitch It Up


The past week has just flown by and here we are ready for another Timeless Tuesday challenge! This week Cindy Haffner is our hostess and her challenge is to add stitching to your creation... machine stitching, hand stitching, or faux stitching, whatever works for you!

I decided to ink up my new From the Desk of... stamp set for my card today and added a row of zig-zag stitching down the panel of pink designer paper on the right side. The designer papers I used are from My Mind's Eye Stella & Rose collections, and my layout comes from this week's sketch #208 at Card Positioning Systems. My wonderful Mom is having a birthday in a few weeks, so this is her birthday card.
Stop over at the Flourishes blog for all the challenge details, and visit the other Timeless Tuesday designers for inspiration...

Silke Ledlow (no card today, but she's got blog candy!)
Amanda Havon, March Guest Designer

So, let's see what you can stitch up! Happy stamping!
