Allsorts Challenge #757 - ATG/Stitching Real or Faux

 Hi Crafters,

Another Saturday has rolled around and our theme this week at Allsorts is


These sweet images are from CraftsUprint and I have adhered them to two stitched die cut panels and matched the pink on the backing paper. A simple, stamped sentiment to finish.

Some of you might choose to use real stitching or doodle the stitches, it is up to you but there is also the Anything Goes option too.

We look forward to seeing what you create and one lucky winner will receive a prize from AALL and Create who still have some fabulous bargains to be had, lots of stamps and stencils are half price or less but you need to be quick as the sale will be over very soon. 

Have fun!
