RoP DT- Stitch it Up!!

Hiya there!!

As I told you some hours ago, I'm back for another Roses on Paper challenge.. it's already our 21st!! Phew.. time passes so quicly! This time it was my turn to decide the challenge. To tell you the truth I had in mind to design a sketch for all of us, but then having Club Anya release, and now Belles nd Whistles Fall release; I didn't manage. So I chose Stitches as a theme.

Yes mate, Stitch it Up!! is what I went for. I want to see your sewing-machine in action on your creations. You don't have it or you prefer faux stitches.. do it! Anything you want, rub ons.. stickers? Any stitches.. I want to see :) For the deets about which stamps you can use for this challenge, the fabulous prize and some inspration from the Dt to get you going.. visit our challenge blog post HERE

Also this is the last challenge you can participate in if you're interested in a Guest DT call that Summer will be doing sometime this month for Belles 'n Whistles Store. Again consult the RoP post for all the information you need:)

I have used Tania Baking for this challenge. As you might know she is one of the lovely designs Summer released for Fall. I love her concentrated look, how lovely she looks in that apron.. and that bowl.. what do you think it contains? :)) Mmm cake mix maybe?

I coloured her in Copics, and cut her out. Then I embossed an oval Core 'dinations cardstock and popped her on. Before that, I rounded the nestie with lace and stitched it up. All the panels are also stitched. I used sketch Saturday's sketch for this one, and Basic Grey wants embossing, so there you go.. three challenges in one!! Yay!

Remember that RoP challenge can also be combined with others, as long as the work is new, and that you link back to our blog. Papers I used for this card are Wisteria Basic Grey. I hope this will stitch up your mojo and get your fingers running! I'm so looking forward to see what y0u come up with..epecially you who come often on my blog. It's double the fun to see you joining as well!!

Good luck, and have a stitchy- er sorry- happy week!!

Thanks for looking
