Having a A Stitching Time

There's a new challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers
Maike is hosting and has chosen  Stitching, Faux or Real.
You can enter anything you fancy,
 it doesn't have to just be cards,
 as long as it meets the challenge,
and doesn't exceed the 15 total challenges entered rule!

I have had this card for quite some time and it was
the first time I had ever tried embroidery on a card
so you will see some  mistakes. This was made
at a card day and the cotton and card base were supplied.
However it was rather plain so I needed to
finish it off. I decided to keep it simple and
add a sentiment from Spellbinders
and a few coloured gemstones to finish.
I so enjoyed making this and have a few books
and supplies to play with but alas they have been neglected.
I did start to make another card for this challenge but
time was running out.
Now pop over and see what my Team Mates have
made for this challenge.
Hope you get the chance to join us.
Thanks for dropping in

Great card. I would never try stitching on a card, but this is certainly fun.

Gorgeous, and such a lovely design!

Thanks for the kind comment on my blog but I owe you an apology. My stylus slipped as I hit 'publish' and I hit 'delete' instead. I hate that Blogger doesn't ask for confirmation and just goes ahead! So your comment was much appreciated but will remain unpublished due to my clumsiness.
