Repeat Impressions Stitching Challenge DCC

It's time for another Designer's Choice Challenge over at Repeat Impressions (DCC)!  Michele chose stitching (real or faux) so I selected the Peaceful Observation stamp (2001-M) for my image.  I cut out the snowflake windows and put some patterned paper behind it.  I added the black scroll to the top in place of the cresent window.  I did attempt to do some REAL zigzag stitching on my DSP layer and here is how it turned out.....

So, I ended up doing faux stitching with a micron pen.

Head on over to The House That Stamps Built for the challenge details, to find out the prize for this challenge and to see the cards from the rest of the design team!

Great job, Miriam - love how you modified the image to make it a non-winter card! Too funny about your sewing 'issues' - that left me in stitches, har har...
