Just Buggin' Challenge #13

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  I know I did and I ate too much!  I also went to Michael's  and got me 5 new Cricut Cartridges!  WooHoo!!  I will be creating and trying new things in the days to come!  I can't wait!
Here's my design for this weeks Just Buggin' Challenge.  The challenge was to Sew It!  Use sewing, faux sewing of faux stitch stamps on your projects!  I have never sewn on paper or cardstock, so this was a totally new experience.  This is the reason I wanted a sewing machine and now that I have one I am so excited!  I decided...what the heck?  I'll try a decorative stitch and this is what I cam up with!  It looks like snowflakes falling. 

Cardstock:  American Crafts
Patterned paper:  My Mind's Eye
Stamp:  Inkadinkadoo
Embossing Ink:  SU' Chocolate Chip
Embossing powder:  Ranger-Clear
Chalk Ink:  VersaMagic Jumbo Java

I recenty bought several new My Mind's Eye paper pads(and Yes, I did finish 106 projects for the Paper Ho Challenge, before I bought any new paper! Yeah!) Anyway, I had the birthday celebrations paper pad that had lots of bright colors, and as I thumbed through it, I found these wonderful papers!

Some of these goodies were made by me, such as the flowers, tickets and journal tags, as well as the bag topper! I had a great time putting these together and cannot wait to see what the other girls came up with!
