Less is More...Sewing

The challenge this week at Less is More is to make a clean and simple card having sewing on your card!  I don't know if my card will be accepted, but KNOW that I used a needle with my ribbon, and although it looks weaved, I SEWED the ribbon through the holes...welllll...hope that counts:)?!
I saw Chrissie's card, and had just gotten the same Simon Says Stamp die this week, and thought it perfect for the challenge in a different way:)  Used some Stampin Up very thin Pumpkin ribbon...loved how it had a thin white edge on it...
threaded it through a needle and started "sewing"...Used a sentiment from Hero Arts that I colored in with Pumpkin Pie marker, layered whole panel on white card.  Each row is a separate ribbon, after threading through I took all the ribbon pieces and added glue dots to the back of the ribbon and adhered the ends to the glue dots.  FUN!!!

Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
