July Embellishment Challenge

Hello!  It's hard for me (Patricia) to believe that July is nearly over!  I've had a lot of fun being your hostess this month and coming up with ideas for the challenges.  Thank you to everyone who has been playing along with us all month, and extra special thanks if you've joined us all year long so far!

Before I get to this week's challenge, I'd like to give everyone a friendly reminder to please read our challenge rules and directions carefully.  We've had a lot of fabulous cards entered into our challenges this month, but unfortunately, many of them have been ineligible for the Design Team's Top Honors and Honorable Mention voting because the participants have not followed our challenge directions and/or guidelines.  This makes the Team very sad!  Thank you for your cooperation in this. 

Now, on to the fun stuff!  This week, we want to see stitching on your cards.  You may use hand stitching, machine stitching, or draw some faux stitching on your card.  You can stitch a border or a design.  The choices are up to you!  However, in order to be considered for our weekly Top Honors and Top Five, the stitching should be easily seen on your card, and consist of more than simply sewing on a button.

Here is our challenge inspiration photo:

This is what the Design Team has created:





Danielle is on a well-deserved break this week.

Now it's your turn!  We'd love to see your artistic stitching!  Remember that you have until 1:00 pm Eastern time Friday, August 2 to link your card.

Please make sure to follow these rules when you play along with us here at 52CCT! :)

*Please read the challenge requirements carefully before creating your card. We will never delete any submissions that do not follow our challenge rules; however, only cards that meet the requirements will be considered by the Design Team for our weekly Top Honors and Honorable Mention voting. 
*Please link back to our blog in your post so that others can join in the fun.
*We would love it if you added our button to the side of your blog.
*Please make sure to link to your POST, not your blog.
*Please make sure NOT to back link.
*In order to be considered for Top Honor or Honorable Mention, you must link up by Friday at 6:00pm GMT.
*You are free to combine this challenge with up to 10 other challenges.
*We'd really appreciate it if you'd turn off word verification so that we can comment more easily! We know a lot of you do this for safety, but it takes a very long time to comment when verification is activated, and you may lose your comments from us...just sayin'. ;)
