DDH Challenge #3 Stitches

Challenge3_April4_Teresa_close up

Hello everyone! I am happy to announce that I am the hostess for the DDH Challenge for the next two weeks, and it is all about stitches! I decided to use the Smell the Flowers set by Digi Design House. Isn't this bear just too cute! Love how it is smelling the flowers.

I had a blast coloring this bear, it took me ages and many layers, but I absolutely love how his fur turned out! I cut out the panels from The Angel Company's Maggie SWIC, such pretty colors in this set. I sewed the panels down with my sewing machine! What kind of stitches do you like to add to cards?

Oh, Teresa...Your bear is too cute. The detail to his fur is really nice. I've wanted to do some stitching on my cards for awhile now....You've inspired me! I'm off to the closet to dig out my sewing maching.
