Lawnscaping challenge #54: Stitching

Hi again! ;) This is my second post today so if you're looking for my Lawn Fawn project  featuring Daphne's Closet collection, just scroll down or click HERE!

It's time for another Lawnscaping challenge! And it's all about stitching, either real or faux :)

I wanted to try some real stitching because it's a thing I barely do. AND this was my first time using my sewing machine on a card (the green zig zag on the borders) it's super easy! I always was afraid of messing up everything so I hadn't do it. But this time I got my sewing machine and did it, and... it's really easy... nothing to be afraid of :) So I'm thankful for this challenge, I'm going to do this more often on my cards :)

The pink paper plane trail is hand stitched but, no, I'm not that professional, my hand stitching is poor so I tricked a bit! ;) I stamped the bee trail with a very soft ink, then I made little holes following the line with a needle and with all that done, sewing is very easy and the final look is very cool!

Also, I have to mention that I LOVE this patterned paper! When I saw the collection it surprised me because it has a map of my country and it includes the name of my city!! :) Well, I know it could seem a nonsence to you but I'm ecited about this haha. I f you wonder, my city's name is Lugo, it's in the north east, just below the paper plane's end :P

I hope you join us for this challenge, our sponsor this time is Lawn Fawn and you could win a stamp set of your choice! The problem is which one to choose! ha! :)
