Sew what!

Well its Tuesday and we have a new theme at Top Tip Tuesday
and you know you are going to love hte theme!
Elaine is hosting our theme of Stitching
our fabulous Sponsor is
for my card I needed a teenage boys card so cute is not an option
I made my son a card last month almost the same design and he loved it so though Dan a year younger than my son would like the same design!
I love Ribbon and this is a fun way to use it on a Lads card and using my sewing machine too! yay! its a great way to add texture too.

My Sewing Tips
Use Low tack tape to position your ribbon instead of gluing it as glue makes your needle drag and breaks the cotton.
you can remove it when you have finished your sewing 
 Pulling your ends through from the back instead of cutting them,
turn your card over and find the thread from the back give it a little sharp tug and you will see a tiny loop pop up, 
 you can then pull the thread through, then add your double sided tape on the back and your thread will stay there too!

Here are some challenges I am playing with my card:
