Greedy Edwin !!!

I made this 6"x6" wall plaque for my DT project for over on the Die cut Dreams challenge blog where this week Vikki choose the theme "Men"
Also over at Roses on paper challenge they want to see stitching this week.
While at My time to craft challenge and at Stamp with fun challenge
the theme is Autumn and at Stamping sisters in Christ challenge they would like us to use the colours of Autumn.
The DP I used is from BG Stella Ruby pad I also used the same papers to punch the flowers before distressing them.
The Magnolia stamp is one of the Edwin's from the new yummy collection, its not one of my favourite but it was nice to colour , I used copic markers to colour him, and distressed the edge of the circle with Tim Holtz inks then I stitched the edges with my sewing machine.
And the sentiment stamp is from SU.

love your creation Susie! Edwin is so handsome here! hehe I hadn't noticed his shoes...I like them this way! Your stitching looks so nice...any tricks on tension? I'm wondering how many layers of card-stock you sew through??? Is it better if there are more? I just did two and my bobbin thread just wants to show on the top no matter what I change the tensions to! bah!
