Sew Charming - New Penny's Challenge

We've got a brand new challenge for you today at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge Blog and this week our theme is 'sew charming' which means we want to see some stitching, real or faux.

Our challenge has been sponsored by Saturated Canary and My Heart Pieces and for more details about the challenge and to see the cards from my fellow Design Team members, have a look here on the blog.

The image I've used is from My Heart Pieces.  I've created a patchwork background using gingham paper and the cross stitch stamp from the Little Claire stamp set 'Georgina's Buttons and Stitching Stamp Set' which you can find here on the website.  I also added some 'running stitch' round the image using the Nestie I cut it with as a guide.

I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges:

Stamp and Create - 'anything goes'
The Pink Elephant Challenge - 'use patterned paper'
The Cutie Pie Challenge Blog - 'no flowers'
Challenge Up Your Life - 'patchwork'
Papelitos Stamps Challenge - 'anything goes'
