Faux Stitches....

This weeks's challenge over at Woodware USA blog is to create something using FAUX Stitching. I don't usually do faux stitching anymore because I love the FEEL of the real thing, so it was hard for me to really focus on this task. I did complete the task though! So you can give me two WHOO HOO's for that!

My first step in creating this card was in looking for some patterned paper. You know me...PAPER JUNKIE! I have paper from WAAAAYYYYY back, so I knew I probably had the PERFECT paper for this challenge. YEP! I did...I found this patterned paper (Old Recollections)with faux stitching and knew it was THE stuff! So I set off to match it up with the perfect stamp set...I found that too in Owl Greetings. It's a fabulous set of owls, little thinking bubbles, awesome sentiments, and a few other doo dads here and there...Heck, take a look for yourself:
Of course, my colorable image wasn't complete until I added some copics right? I also finished it off with a bit of distressing with vintage photo ink and some ribbons.

Now the question is...What did the little birdie tell me???? Ha!

So I'm off tomorrow to Sur La Table to learn how to make some deelish cupcakes for fall...I wonder if that will be my inspiration for next week???? I guess I need to take some photos.

Have a great weekend!
