Silhouette Challenge # 3: Faux Stitching

It's the first of the month again and time 
for another Challenge over at

A blog dedicated to the Silhouette Cutting Machines.
You MUST use a Silhouette somehow in your project.

Ch# 3 Faux Stitching
Begins: Monday, July 1
Ends: Wednesday, July 31

Sponsors this month are:
Prize: GC
Digital Pack (Winner's Choice)
Here's what I created for this challenge:
For the base of my card I used a Center Panel Step Card Cutting File from PPPR.
With the help of my Silhouette I was able to Faux Stitched around the white layers of my card.
IT was so much FUN to do that!!
 I wanted to make a "Get Well" card for a friend so when I this ADORABLE
 "LadyBug Cutting File from PPPR " I knew this would be perfect, especially knowing that my friend loves ladybugs


  I added a little dimension to the ladybug's flower with foam tape.
The yellow flowers are from Recollection which I won over at "PPPRas well as the files used in this project.
