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 ...

STITCHING/FAUX STITCHING
... 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.
