In The Pink Challenge #69 Stitching Real or Faux

Good Morning and welcome to my DT post for the new challenge at In The Pink. This fortnight we are challenging you to use stitching, either real or faux. I had to go for faux as I just couldn't face hand stitching all round my patterned papers and I have no idea where my boyfriend has moved my mini sewing machine to. Not that I can actually use it, mind you! I bought it a few years ago from Hobbycraft for £40 to use on my cards, but it is pretty sucky to be honest and all the cotton kept jamming every time I used it. I eventually gave up on it and got the BF to put it away - I think it's in the loft! When we move and I get my own craft room, I might dig it back out and have another try!

Anyway here is my card... I kept it fairly simple this time so you could see the faux stitching.

We are being sponsored by The Ribbon Girl this week who are generously giving a £10 gift voucher to the winner!
