Smudgy Antics Weekly Challenge - You Leave Me in Stitches

Congratulations to the winner and top three of the 

"Anything Goes" challenge last week!

This week's challenge theme is:

This challenge prompt can go in several different directions.  You can take the challenge literally and use an image with stitches (or add stitches to a "normal" image).  You can use stitching (real or fake) on your projects or you can create something so damned funny that you cause us to have a stitch in our sides from laughing so hard.

We can't wait to see which direction you decide to go with this challenge.  The more creative and inventive, the better!  Head on over to the Smudgy Antics Blog to get more inspiration from the Smeared Ink DT gals and to check out the rules/requirements for the challenge. 

Here is my offering:

I used "Tease" zombie from Smeared Ink's "Zombie Pinups" digi set.
She was colored digitally in PSE8 and added to an Itkupilli background.  I then  printed my composition out on 4" x 6" glossy photo paper and mounted it on various layers of scrap papers I'm trying to use up.  The floral paper is DCWV. I'm not sure where the other papers came from.  I was going to hand stitch and couldn't find my needles.  Ugh!  I've been cleaning my craft area, but haven't quite finished so I'm sure I'll find my needles and floss when I get to my last 3 piles.  Because I couldn't hand stitch and I don't own a sewing machine, I scanned my project to my pc and added stitching in PSE8.
