The Alphabet Challenge: U is for Use some Stitching

Good morning and Happy New Year!  I am really excited today to be joining the design team for The Alphabet Challenge blog  .

This week's letter is U, which is for Use some stitching.  The stitching on your card can be real or faux.  I decided to hand stitch my card for this challenge.  I used a cute image by LeAnn's World for this card, which I coloured using Prismacolor pencils.  I die cut a circle around my image and hand stitched around the edges.  I layered my image onto patterned papers and also hand stitched the edges of each paper that I used.  This took me absolutely ages, but it's a technique I love because I always like the way my finished card looks. 

I finished off my card with a ribbon bow and some die cut flourishes.

I hope you can join in this week's Alphabet Challenge.
