Sweet Stamps Stiches Challenge

Welcome for another Tuesday with Sweet Stamps!!

Our challenge this week is:

Real or Faux

Here's my creation:

I have never added stitching to any of my projects before, so this was a first time for me, so don't laugh!  I actually think it didn't turn out too bad!  I've been wanting to add stitching to my projects, but just haven't found a simple machine that I like.  But I did buy the We R Memories Stitcher with the different heads, which is what I used for this card.  (I bought it last year and hadn't used it until now!!)  So it was time to try it out!

Anyway, here is a straight on look at the card:

For this easel card I used Firewheel Flower Duo which was one of the new releases in June.  I used the two to create the main background using the masking technique. 

I just love this sentiment, as you can use it for so many different occasions, it's called Special Day.  I think I'm going to use this for a bridal shower card, as my cousin and his fiance are getting married in Hawaii, so the bright colors will be perfect.  A few month's till be leave for the wedding, I can't wait for a vacation!!!

I also used Bold Butterfly Medium next to the sentiment. 

I then added some Creative Inspirations Fairy Dust to give the butterfly a little shimmer. And lastly I added some Teal Pearls.

Make sure to join us on the Sweet Stamps blog, we'd love to see what you create.  You have a chance at winning $20 to purchase some "sweet" things of your own!!  There's plenty of fun things to choose from!
