OLL #92 Stitching

Get your sewing machine or your needle or your fine liner out, ladies, 'cos it is time to show your stitching skills over at Ooh La la.
The challenge will run until Sunday 13th November so you have plenty of time to practise (if like me, you need to, of course!)
I have never been happy using my sewing machine with paper (that probably shows, if anything, that my skill with the machine is not great :-)) so I tend to go for faux stitching. And this is precisely what I did with this Christmas card: all papers are from OLL; the die cut is Shapeabilities Nested Bird; gems from my own stash; alphas are Sizzix die cuts and so is the branch.
 Close up
Some challenges:
Raise the bar - Sew what?
Bah Humbug - Die cuts
Jingle Belles - Creatures
Dream Valley challenges - Anything goes

You may not particularly enjoy the combination of sewing machine and paper but the quality of your faux stitching means you don't have to lol! Thank you for sharing with us at Bah! Humbug!
