Sew,it’s a boy!

At Craft Your Passion this week the theme of the challenge is For Baby with optional stitching.We have two fab sponsors – Patties Creations and Scrapbook Unique.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT and GDT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job!

For my card I’ve used the sweet Little Boy Sailor Suit from Patties Creations and coloured with ProMarkers.I’ve traced over the hanger using a silver gel pen.Now I’m not the World’s greatest stitcher but I thought I’d give it a whirl!I punched the edges of two papers with an EK Success punch that created a row of holes along the wavy edge and carefully back stitched.I pricked holes around the edge of the oval and again used back stitch.I pleated the paper along the bottom and made a pleated rosette too.To the centre of this I added a giant brad stamped with the sentiment.I finished the card with a die cut corner.
