Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge #451

This is my 2nd post today. 

Welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge !! Thank you for joining us for the "Gift It" Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too :-)

This week the challenge is... 

Stitch It (Real or Faux)

 We are using We R Memory Keepers products this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some, we love to see them used :-) 

I proceeded to stamp a colorful background with stars and added some hand-stitching for the sentiment.  All the inks I used are from Simon Says Stamp Ink.

I saw it on Simon Says Stamp

I like the colorful stars and the grid.

Clever. I was wondering how you got the sheen on the grid. Never thought of foil but it looks amazing as does the silver stitching. Wonderful card.

The stars are fabulous, but with the addition of the grid lines and your stitched sentiment, you've elevated them to astronomically awesome! LOVE this happy, inspirational card!
PS. Hope your safe in all the snow you've received. YIKES!

The gold lines on the card really adds a nice touch. I put the Heat wave tool on my Christmas list based on seeing one of your cards weeks ago. Sure hope Santa comes through.
