Sunday Card Challenge

Hi, there! It's time for another card challenge at The Studio and we hope you will play along with us. This week, Amanda is challenging us to sew or weave on a card. Here's a little design team inspiration to get the creative wheels turning....
I sew quite a bit on my projects so I thought I'd try the weaving for this challenge. For the circle accents I made panels of woven paper strips then ran the sheets through a die cutting machine. To secure the strips once the circles were cut, I machine stitched around edges. Since the woven patterns are complicated, I kept the rest of the card very simple.

Brenda added some hand-stitching to her card:

Rossella stitched on her card., as well. The image is from the site Vintage Papergoods.

...and we are also joined this week the very talented Lisa of our layout team...

I've been playing with the new 'Baby Mine' collection from Fancy Pants.
I've hand stitched quite a lot on this card and weaved the embroidery floss along the holes of the doily too.
I've also hand stitched this inside the card.
Are you inspired to stitch or weave on your card? I know I am! We'd love to see what you come up with - so link up on the side for your chance to win this month's prize.
