It's Sketch Time

"Let's Get Physical" is the latest WTG (Who's That Girl?) stamp set from My Favorite Things.  Ever since I started working on this card I haven't been able to shake Olivia Newton-John.  Thank goodness I like that song. 
It's time for the Wednesday Stamp Club sketch challenge.  On the thread we've been talking about sewing.  My machine was out from the last card so I decided to stitch a little on this one.  Well, I don't know what I did, I wasn't paying attention, I got the bottom layer done just fine, then I decided to zig zag around the veggie paper and something snagged and the stitches got wonky.  I actually like the way it looks so I didn't try to fix it and I stitched on the green semi-circle.  Now I don't recommend that you try to mess up your stitches but if it happens and you like it well, what the heck.  Even thought I wasn't paying attention I do know that my tension is off and that I have to re-thread the machine and make sure that the bobbin is sitting correctly.  Then it will be back to normal. 

I didn't use a charm, I didn't bling it up, there are no stickles, and no dimensionals on this card.  It just seemed right pared down. 

Here's the deets:
stamp - My Favorite Things "Let's Get Physical" WTG
ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
