Whimsy Challenge: Sew, Baby, Sew!

I'm back again with a Whimsy challenge! This week, break out that needle & thread or sewing machine; we want to see sewing on your card! Remember that you can use any image you like in the challenge!

ETA: I didn't know ahead of time, but Denise is offering a really cute digi stamp to one random player this week - go check it out!

Today's card is a baby card. I really want to try some machine sewing on my cards, but my machine is still boxed and hard to get to at the moment. Maybe if I can get my hands on one of those mini machines - hmmmm.... =D

So, I did a little faux stitching around the edges of each layer, hand sewed the buttons to the card, and added a couple of little x's in the corners of two of the layers. The inside has a rub-on sentiment that says, "Welcome, Little One!"

This image actually has three little goslings in it, but I wanted a smaller focal panel, so one of the little goslings got the boot. It's been a while since I watercolored any images, so I decided to break out my watercolor pencils for this one. The sky has a very pale blue wash to soften the stark white.

So how will YOU add sewing to your card? We can't wait to see what you create! Thanks for the visit today; have a terrific Labor Day!
