Papercraft Challenge: stitching (faux or real)

Hello and welcome to another challenge!  This week's theme is...

- - - stitching (faux or real) - - - 

Every week you have the chance to win three digital stamps of your choice from Handmade Harbour - just add your link below.  Last week's winners were announced here.

Well, this may be a papercraft challenge, but we aren't averse to a little foray into other craft areas!  This first image shows off some real stitching, with fabric instead of paper - and a fabulous little air freshener which would make a super little Father's Day gift this Sunday.

Josie made her adorable little air freshener using the vintage car and caravan digital stamp and she soaked the felt backing in scented oil before sewing - so much nicer than the cardboard air fresheners!

Frezja made a super sweet card with the elephant and bird digital stamp and there's real stitching in this one too!

Elina's gorgeous card features the girl with flowers stamp and she's used a mix of faux and real stitching.  Black embroidery floss around the image is real (and I love how it frames the image) and there's faux white stitching in the background as well as on the image.  

Emma's beautiful card is based on the happy birthday quilt digistamp and it's all about the stitching!

Last but definitely not least is Teresa's gorgeous card with the sewing machine digital stamp - I love how Teresa made some paper patchwork and then made the image look like it had almost popped out of the patchwork design - absolutely gorgeous!

We'd love to see what you have made with the stitching theme - it's easy to add your blog link below!  Please feel free to join in and to visit your fellow linkers too...
