Growing in Unity: Day 1, Sew Happy

Hello there and welcome to my first day of my Growing in Unity posts.
I will be posting a project each day that will use Unity stamps.
Be sure to leave a comment each day for more chances to win
TWO Unity Itty Bitty's
of your choice from Unity Stamp Co.

Up first is this sweet little number with the "Sew, Sew, Sew" set.

I also used some of my Kiwi Lane templates to get a cool paper wave.

And finally, I stitched a running stitch along the side of my card with some twine. I have so many friends that are crafty in the sewing department and I'm just not so I can't wait to give this to one of them.

All Tim Holtz Distress Inks
Peacock Feathers
Dried Marigold
Fired Brick
Aged Mahogany

Linking my card up to the Paper Girls Challenge #25 Twine.
