Christmas is Coming ...

Supplies:  pp, chipboard accents, layered chipboard - 
Blitzen Collection by Bo Bunny, 
Merry die and sentiment - PTI, fired brick 
distress ink, machine stitching, 6x6 card blank, white gel 
pen and roller adhesive.

This week's challenge on Paperplay is "Christmas is Coming" 
and we are very kindly sponsored by Simon Says Stamp.
I added depth by layering chipboard accents on top of the patterned paper.  I opened my new dies from Papertrey Ink and ran some white cardstock through my Big Shot.  I adhered to the pp with machine stitching and stamped the remainder of the sentiment with fired brick distress ink. 

You will notice my machine stitching is loose - have been using my sewing machine for a non paper project and have to realign my tension! Takes a few days for the machine to catch up!
