Tuesday Throwdown with Stitching!

Today I have another Tuesday Throwdown challenge from Sherrod Studio to share with you. But first, I have huge news to share with you! Sherrod Studio is currently having a MEGA SALE - 40% off all stamp sets! How amazing is that???  Be sure to check it out soon before the sale is over!

Now on to today's card. DT member Leah challenged the team to add stitching to their card. This was the perfect opportunity to try out my Christmas gift from my hubby - a Janome Sew Mini machine!





















I kept the sewing pretty simple on this one - just zig-zagging around the outer edges of the DP. I thought the zig zag was perfect to go along with the spiky design on the paper. I then stamped and colored the martian from the Out of This World set and cut him out with the pinked circle Nestie (again staying with the spiky edges). A little goldish sparkle pen dotted some of the images on the paper as well as parts of the spaceship and then the cute sentiment finished it off perfectly!

Want to join in the fun? Add some stitching - faux or real - on your next card and post it on your blog or other online gallery. Then head over to the Sherrod Studio blog and leave a link so we can check out your artwork!

Until next time - have a creative day!
