Alicia Bel Challenge #12 Stitching Real or Faux

Good Morning everyone and welcome to my DT post for the new challenge at AliciaBel. This month we are challenging you to use stitching, but it can be real or faux. Now I'm not very good with a sewing machine and to be honest I have no idea where my sewing machine actually is, so I hand-sewed the borders on all my patterned papers and it also gives me the chance to use up some of the pile of embroidery thread that I still have left over from my cross-stitching days.

I used the adorable Prince for my card today and I think stitching is a perfect addition for a man's card seeing as I can't add flowers or lots of pretty die cuts to it! LOL
