I'm Sew Excited!

Moxie Fab World's current challenge is "I'm Sew Excited"...using sewing icons on a project.  My card uses a needle threaded with baker's twine.


I stamped the needle on a scrap of ivory paper and poked a hole in the eye as well as a hole just above the eye to thread the twine through.  I stamped the sentiment then I used teeny dabs of glue to strategically adhere the twine.  The right edge is finished with pinking shears.  I don't really card for sewing in real life, but threading this needle was fun!

Supplies:
Paper: (orange gingham & watermelon) a muse studio, (pure luxury ivory) GinaK, (basic black) SU
Ink: (noir black) palette hybrid, (tea dye) PTI
Stamps: (quilter's sampler) PTI
Accessories: (tangerine baker's twine) The Twinery, pinking shears, (pop dots) ANM, (corner chomper) WeRMemoryKeepers
