It's Wednesday, and time for another Fabulous challenge at Cuttlebug Challenge Blogspot! :) Be sure to play because there is a great prize up for grabs!

So what's the challenge? Just incorporate FABRIC into your cuttlebugged projects!!
I created this very Masculine "Friends" card:
I also attempted machine stitching here (that's huge for me 'cuz Im terrified of sewing machines!) Guess it's mainly because I have no clue how to even thread the darn things! And now I have 2 needle pokes on my index finger from trying it this morning! I know, that's seriously sad, but it's also funny at the same time! LOL

Stamps: PSX, 1999, FRIENDS, #G-2197
Paper: Heavy Textured CREAM CS & Brown Bazzill CS
Ink: Brilliance Brown, Brown marv Matchables, Brown Marvy LePlume Marker (for faux stitching) Brown StazOn, Copics (for shadowing text)
Accessories: VELVET Patterned and solid Brown FABRIC textiles, Large Square Copper Brads, Small & Large Circle Copper Brads, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, Sewing Machine, Spellbinders
Techniques: Machine Stitching, Faux Stitching, Sponging, Dry Embossing
