Are you ready for another challenge?
It's a new challenge at the Wags 'n Whiskers blog today.
This week Tina is our hostess and she has challenged us to Stitch 'em Up! You can use machine sewing, hand sewing, faux sewing, or even just piercing!
The only rule... you must use a Wags 'n Whiskers Rubber Stamp as your main image to be entered into the prize drawing.

If you don't have any Wags 'n Whiskers, then you are just going to want to go shopping here.

Since I love sewing with my machine and use it many of my creations, this was very easy for me. I decided to color this adorable image Angel Whispers with Tim Holtz Distress Inks cute it out use paper tole for dimension. I also added stickles to the angel wings and the butterflies but it is hard to see in the picture. The paper is from the Basic Grey Nook and Pantry pad. I just love this paper and can't wait to use it again soon!!! I also used the Martha Stewart fence punch and the Moracca Lace punch from EK Success. I distressed by paper with ink on the edges to give it an antiquated look. The is my second easel card!! They are so fun to make and I just love seeing the inside and outside at once. The sentiment says "Thanks for being my "furever" friend."

Here are the list of other challenges I worked on for this card as well:
My Grafico Challenge: stitching
Secret Crafter Challenge: create an Easel Card
Sophisticat Challenge #10- Wings
Inspiration Card Sketches Challenge- sketch
Crazy 4 Challenges: Easel Card
Kraftin Kimmie stamps: stitch it up
Flutter By Wednesday Challenge- to use a butterfly, fairy or angel on your card and show you are thankful
Cute Card Thursday- Glitter Me Silly- I did use glitter on the angel wings and butterflies but the photo sure does not show it.
