Good Morning Everyone,

It is time for a new challenge at As You Like It and for this fortnight we would like you to showcase a project containing your favourite of either Real or Faux stitching.

I do love hand stitching, more on my shabby chic types of card, but my real favourite is faux stitching from dies.  I think they finish a card off wonderfully and are a quick and easy way to get the stitched look.

I have used an Inkylicious stamp on my DT card which I stamped onto the card and then again on spotty paper so I could fussy cut and paper piece the main part of the shoe.  The red part has been coloured with a copic pen.  The sentiment comes with the stamp and I used Versafine ink for this as it is quite intricate.   All the dies used have stitched edges.  This card is for a friend who nearly always wears killer heels.  I think my days of wearing heels like that are long gone!

The sponsor of the challenge is

It's me again, not sure why I thought you linked up at Allsorts, I must have misread it. But anyway, your wonderful card does fit our theme at Allsorts so well and we would love to have you joining us there unless you've already entered 3 times.
