Top Tip Tuesday Faux Sewing Card

 Hello and welcome here!  We're halfway through April, where oh where does time fly to?  This week on Top Tip Tuesday the challenge is Say It Isn't Sew!  We want to see faux sewing, you can draw stitch lines, or hand sew, just no machine sewing.

Challenge - Say It Isn't Sew!
No machine sewing
Card Size: 4.25" x 5.5"
A huge thank-you to our Sponsor Saturated Canary for supplying the DT with digital images. I chose Summer Swing. I cut out the image because I wanted to hand stitch the rope she was holding onto.  I used brown Baker's Twine.  My Tip is to pierce holes before sewing so that you don't bend or wrinkle your card trying to pierce and sew at the same time.

For a chance at the following prizes, be sure to link your creation to the Say It Isn't Sew! Challenge  at Top Tip Tuesday, you can enter up to 3 times!! For a chance at an extra prize leave a tip on your blog and be sure to leave 'tip' after your name in Mr. Linky.
Don't forget the challenge runs for 2 weeks and closes at 1pm.
