Paper Pretties Challenge

I have been a fan of Paper pretties since I first started stamping. That was about 4 years ago and that was also when the very first Sophia stamp came out (cuddle me). Recently, paper pretties changed hands and has a new owner, My old Firecracker Design Team member Heather! I am so happy for her new adventure and wholeheartedly support this endeavor!!!!!! It does help that I am HOPELESSLY addicted to Sophia and anything that has her connected to it :)

So the pretties Wednesday challenges are continuing and I am down to the wire!

I used make a splash Sophia! I am LOVING using my sewing machine on my cards. I received it as a gift from my mom last Christmas and I NEVER have sewed before! So I am learning and my stitches are getting straighter!!! So Jodi over on Confessions of a ribbon addict has this great Q&A about sewing on cards. She recommends this thread that is XP super thick and it is sold at Joann's. Well I have thread from Wal-mart and I was Leary if there really was a difference. OMG their is! if you look closely at the card you will notice I actually made this card in pieces over a few days. the larger square (card base) was stitched with my wal-mart thread and the circle and smaller thread was stitched with my new super thick thread.....can you see how much brighter and thicker it looks!
