New Challenge #68 at Glitter n Sparkle

Hello everyone
Yes it's that time of week again, Sunday is here.
Its been a very waiting week,
I'm waiting for my Nephew to make his appearance,
but he seems to be taking his time.

So here is my card for this week
(I like to think that it is the younger brother
of that little green man we all know!):-

The Theme at Glitter n
Sparkle is:-
Stitching Real or Faux

Our Sponsors this week are:-

Fitztown who are offering
3 Images from their store

Scribbles Designs who are offering
3 Images from their store

Sassy Studios who are offering
4 Images from their store

Eureka Stamps who are offering

My project for this week is:-

Brr Yodi digi stamp 
from Scribbles Designs (one of our sponsors)

For my base card I used a pre-cut White Square
Swing Card.

I then used some Black/White Crosshatch Paper,
which I had in my scrap box. 
I cut it into 1 inch Strips to fit around the 
outside frame of the card.
I then used a 2 inch strip of Black Matte Paper
which was also in my scrap box, 
and cut to fit the Right hand edge of the 
back face of the card.
Using some Black Pearlised Paper 
cut out 2 Squares, 
to fit the Swing Centre front and back.

I then coloured in my Image using 
my Promarker Pens.
And cut it to fit inside the Black Square.

For my sentiment I thought I would choose 
a Quote from Yoda (Starwars),
which would go with a Happy Birthday for a Male.
I then typed it out using 
Troutkings BTN font in blue.
Which I then cut to fit inside the 
remaining Black Square.

For my stitching,
I did Faux around my Digi image 
with Promaker Cornflower.
And I Pierced 2 rows in 5mm intervals
over the 2 backing papers,
and using 1 thread of Light Blue 
(DMC 813) Embroidery Tread,
Criss-crossed it all the way down the pierced holes.
