A stitch in time

   We have another challenge beginning at Crafty Cardmakers and More today, the theme of which is stitching - real or faux.
   I used design paper from Aspire Crafts which had faux stitching on it and matted it onto core'dinations cardstock and white card. I took another piece of the cardstock and embossed it using Sheena Douglas' floral fabric folder, distressed it by sanding and attached it to the top of the card.
   The image is from the Mice and Crafty set of House Mouse Design stamps from Joanna Sheen. I coloured it using Promarkers adding some faux stitching to the boot being sewn and matted it onto a darker piece of core'dinations cardstock before fixing it to the card using foam pads.
   I attached a greetings tag to the bottom left of the card and a bow made from two ribbons to the bottom right of the image.

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
   Dream Valley - anything goes
