Digi Doodle Shop's Challenges #63 Stitching

The theme for this week's challenge at Digi Doodle Shop's Challenges is STITCHING. We want to see any type of stitching on your projects. For my card, I used the image "All Dressed Up" from the Digi Doodle Shop. Just love this little sweetie. My boys used to run around like this wearing their dad's shoes. For my stitching, I decided to do something a little different this time. I stitched around the card as usual with a basic stitch but instead of using rhinestones for my swirls, I decided to use french knots. I think the french knots look great and will definitely be trying this again in the future.

We would love for you to join us in this challenge. Simply create a project using stitching and link it up to the Digi Doodle Shop's Challenge blog for your chance to win a gift certificate to the Digi Doodle Shop.
