Moxie Fab Challenge


The latest challenge at the Moxie Fab blog was to create a paper crafted project that featured embroidery floss. My first thought was, "Do I own any embroidery floss?" My next thought was, "Wait, do I even own a needle?" The good news was I had both. I guess you can say that I don't do much sewing.

For my card, I placed a sticker by Ecstasy Crafts onto white cardstock and stitched part of it with red floss and part with purple floss. I only poked my fingers four times during the stitching. I then cut out the sticker, added some layers of paper, and added some purple rhinestones by Hero Arts.

Perhaps the best thing about challenges is trying something outside your comfort zone. Have a great week everyone!
