Hello everyone! Well, it's Thursday again and time for another Twisted Thursday "Anything Goes" challenge at The Outlawz. The optional twist for this week is "Sew/Flax Sewing". This twist includes faux sewing as well...creating stitch marks on your project with a pen.

I chose the cute little cupcake image from Besties and colored it with Copics. Next, I cut and embossed it with the largest die from Spellbinders A2 Valiant Honor.  A dark green ribbon was weaved through the openings around the entire die cut panel to represent the "sewing" option. It was then popped on to white card stock which was adhered to a mint green base card. My sentiment was computer generated, cut with Spellbinders Beaded Ovals die and then sponged around the edges with PTI Ocean Mist ink before being removed form the die and popped onto my base card.

I hope you enjoyed this post and got your MOJO going to create something for this week's challenge at The Outlawz.  Looking forward to seeing your awesome creations!

Thanks for stopping by and make it a great day!
