DYSU Challenge #28 - Sew (Faux or Real)

Hello everyone, greetings from Japan!  Sorry this post is late...I miscalculated the time difference!
It's hard to believe it's already Thursday again and time for another challenge at Do You Stack Up!  This week, the challenge is to sew on your card...real or faux stitching is accepted.  I often forget to use this technique and I had so much fun doing it...I really like how my card turned out..I think the stitching added a lot of visual interest...I definitely need to use this technique more often!





Here is my card:




This week I used a fun elephant image by Robyn's Fetishes.  It just felt celebratory hence the sentiment I chose.  I also thought it'd go well with a circus theme so I used MME Animal Crackers paper and added, "admit one" ticket stubs as embellishments which gave it a circus-y feel.



This week's Sponsors:



Mami Doodles: 4 Digital Images




Robyn's Fetish: The winner’s choice of EITHER 5 digital stamps OR 4 digital stamps and 1 paper pack
