Basic Grey Challenge #7 ~ Stitching

This week over at the Basic Grey Challenges blog, we are looking for sewing on your card or layout. Can be real stitching or faux, as long as you use something BG on your project.

I went for hand-stitching (and wished I hadn't!! It looks awful! lol) and I used BG's 'Archaic' range of papers from the 6" x 6" pad, and some buttons from the same range, and some Bazzill cardstock. The pine tree is cut using an old medium Sizzix die. Can't remember off the top of my head where the sentiment stamp is from.. will check and let you know. Brads are from Making Memories.

Please do come over and join us at the Basic Grey Challenges this week.. we'd love to have your company, and see your creations!
