House of Cards September Challenge ...

Good morning! It's the first of the month, and that means it's time for a New Challenge over at the House of CardsThis month's Challenge is a Word Cue ~ Stitch it Up.

We would love to see your projects featuring "Stitching ~ Faux or Real". Whether that is done with dies, stamps, or if you actually sew on your card.

My card features Faux Stitching created by a die. This set is from My Favorite Things and is called Inside & Out Diagonal Stitched Rectangular STAX. There are many different dies out there that will provide you with a stitched look. I paired the die up with the Graceful Greetings stamp set from Papertry Ink. The final step was to add some white pearls to the center of the flowers.

Make sure you hop on over to the House of Cards Challenge Blog for all of the details for entering our Monthly Challenge. I can't wait to see what inspires you this month!
