Bah! Humbug! Challenge #8

It's Friday and that means it's Bah! Humbug! Challenge time ... Whoo Hoo!
As it's the first challenge of a new month, there is also a wee prize up for grabs to one lucky random entry, so it's worth joining in 'cos it may be you.

The theme this week is ...

... so it's time to show off your needlework skills OR if you prefer, you can pretend - like I did by using a combination of stamps and a black fineliner.
The papers are from my stash and I can't remember where they came from, but have a feeling they are from a pack by English Paper Company.
I thought these sweet gingerbread people were just too cute to keep hidden and the printed text with stitching paper I used, meant most of the work was already done. 
The zigzag effect across the bottom panel was a clear stamp from a QVC kit and, as you see, I went a little wonky but it would've been much worse with a real sewing machine.  Believe me!
My fellow 'Humbuggers' Irene and Ann have put much more effort into their examples so please take a look and if you'd like to join in with our challenge, you might be our lucky random winner.  Good Luck xx

Great card Max - nearly used the same paper myself - phew that would have been a clanger maybe although the cards would not have been the same.
Have a good weekend.
