sweetly in stitches

Back again, with my card for Sweet Stampin challenge blog :)
The theme this week is called 'in stitches'
this could mean real stitching, faux stitching, or even a humorous card, the choice is yours.
Here's mine...

I started with SU Cameo Coral cardstock, then removed a section and replaced it with a strip of acetate across the middle.
On the white scalloped pieces, I used my smallest ball end tool to dent the card stock then drag a cameo coral marker through the dents, to imitate stitching.
Then went around the card with my white gel pen for more 'stitching'
Then finished with a cute Hanglar girlie and some SU "one of a kind" stamped/"boho blossoms" punched flowers.

Please go visit my fellow design team members blogs for more inspiration, not forgetting the stunning work created by our talented Guest Designers too ;)

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend xx
