Playing In Paradise # 54

Happy Friday, a quick post today for the new Playing in Paradise Challlenge. This week the challenge is to use Stitching  Real or Faux.

I wanted to make this a masculine card but the DP ended being a little more bright then I expected even with the layers textured and rubbed with brown ink. I even dragged out my sewing machine from the depts of my closet, I think it has a tension problem though because the tread bunched in behind. In the end the card has a worn leathery look.

Stop by the Playing in Paradise blog to see the fabulous design team creations.

Supplies: Natural Ivory and brown cardstock, Designer Paper - Basic Grey, TPC-Cardmaking-Happy Birthday, Making Memories buckle, Candy Dots, misc ribbon.
