The Pixies "Stitch It Up" this Week!

How many of you love to stitch on your cards?  I'll bet lots of you do.  For those who like the look but not the actual sewing, you can always do a faux stitch.  That is what I've done with this week's challenge.  I really like to sew on cards, but sometimes I'm in a hurry.  This week I've used Kathy's "Island Fairy" digi.  She's available in the Pixie Dust Studio along with many other fabulous digis.
You can see my faux stitching around the image oval and also in the border behind the die cut oval.  I used a Cuttlebug embossing strip to achieve the zigzag stitch on the border.  I used Basic Grey's Euphoria collection and Bazzill card stock.  My fairy was colored with Copic markers, my flowers are from Prima and I've used Stickles to add some glamour and glitz.

Join us for this week's challenge and link your card here, we'd love to see your creations!  If you would like some inspiration, just visit the other's Pixie's blogs listed on my sidebar.

Thanks for visiting!
