Can you sew??

Well thats the challenge this week over at Stamptacular Sunday Challenge!!

(if you are looking for the Christmas card blog hop its the post below this one!!)

For this week’s challenge at SSC you will create a card or project for someone special…but…there’s a catch! You MUST include some sort of sewn effect. You can do this any way you wish…faux or real…you choose.
Now I did drag out the old sewing machine for this one!.  it was lucky I had used it only a short while ago so it was all still threaded up ready to go...or should that be sew...LOL

I have used the UBER gorgeous 'Lady Tilda' from the new Magnolia Spring kit.  Isnt she just beautiful!!  If you would like to pre-order her you can get pre-order her from Diana over at Magnolialicious if you are in the US, or from Bec at  Bizzy Bec's if you are in Australia.


I have paper pieced her dress using this gorgeous paper from TCP Studio.
I have used Chocolate chip and Close to Cocoa (retiring soon!) cardstock from SU.
Sentiment is from The new Swiss Pixies kit at All that scraps.

Tildas skin is coloured with copics E11, E00, E000 and R20.
Rose is using RV29, R20, YG 67, 63

Flowers and leaves are from Bizzy Bec's.
Ribbons are from my stash.

And I hope to see your creation soon!
