Fantabulous Cricut #29- National Sewing Month

It's National Sewing Month over at the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog. For this week we were asked to make something that incorporated sewing of some degree... actual machine, hand or faux stitching... I went with hand since I had never done it before on a project. I used Lyrical Letters to cut my "hello" out at 1-1/2 inches on green Bazzill then I used some pink DCWV paper for the butterfly and glittered that with white. The pattern paper is also DCWV from the Nana's Nursery- Baby Girl stack, I rounded 2 of the corners opposite from each other and also inked the edges of the white base with Holyhock from CTMH. I finished it off by using my paper piercer to make the holes and then stitched some DMC floss through. Thanks for stopping by make sure to check out the FCCB to enter your own project and also for a chance to win some great prizes :)
