Basic Grey Challenges - Stitching

Hi everyone!! Well it's Saturday and that means a brand new challenge on Basic Grey Challenges

This fortnight we would love to see you use STITCHING on your creations. It can be real or faux stitching, the choice is yours. 

I have fallen in love with Teddy Bea and Teddy Bo's.. for real. I'm not usually good with bears but how could you go wrong with these images?!!  Beeeeyond sweet!!

I have used Basic Grey Sweet Threads papers, all machine stitched. Can't get enough of them.. you may have noticed that I've used them once or twice before, lol. Running out fast.. need more!! 

I had kept the embellies light - I just added some flowers, pearls and seam binding. Then I found an old necklace while tidying up so I pulled it apart and added some more bling.. which led to the Star Dust stickles coming out... you see how these things snowball??!! lol. Anywhooo... as it's now all glammed up I can enter it into the Teddy Bo Challenge which is themed Glam it Up.

Copics Used:
E31, 33, 35, 37, 50, 51, 53. 
R01, 12, 20, 22, 24, 29.
