SSS31 Button Ornaments
Here's my take on today's Sweet Stop Sketch #31. The twist for this particular sketch challenge is to have sewing on your card. Well..... I don't sew. Nope, not a lick. If any buttons need to be sewed on or pants need to be hemmed up, my hubby does that. Not me! :-) So I went with the next best thing - Faux Stitching.
It's easy to do faux stitching. Just use a white gel pen (or any color of marker) and start making little lines around the edges of your cardstock. You can see I did this on the oval sentiment layer, around the button ornaments layer, on the green designer paper strip, and on the two little tabs on the side.
Go check out what the Sugar Babies have created for this sketch by going to the Sweet Stop Sketches blog. Even if you don't sew, please consider playing along with this sketch by adding some faux stitching like I did. Please use keyword SSS31 when you upload your card to SCS or PCP.
Enjoy your weekend! Can you believe Thanksgiving is almost here?? Happy Early Thanksgiving!!
