The Next Level Issue #5 & Roses On Paper Challenge #14



The challenge this week over at The Next Level is a card sketch.



The catch to this is the stitching. I have to be honest with you I don't know how to sew. I just got my sewing machine a week ago and started tinkering with it. Well I have to say it has been a real experience after 2 broken needles, stitching my hand in the machine "OUCH!!!" and lots of broken thread I think I have gotten it under control. I have to give a super big thank you to True who did the amazing sewing tutorial 2 weeks ago. Her instructions were perfect and lead me through the process with real easy. I am also entering this in the ROP Challenge where they have asked us to create a card with flowers and link it to another challenge. Here is my take on this weeks sketch.
