Faux Stitching for House of Cards

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

The card I'm sharing with you today is my DT offering for the latest challenge over at House of Cards. Our theme this month is...

You can use either real or faux stitching on your project and I immediately knew that the Bohemian Borders stamp set from Stampin' Up! would be perfect for the job!

Card: Crumb Cake and Whisper White
Ink: Rich Razzleberry and Tempting Turquoise
Stamp sets: Bohemian Borders and Tag talk
Tools: Bracket Label punch
Adhesives: Tear & Tape and Stampin' Dimensionals

#198 AAG at Word Art Wednesday
#192 AAG at Pixie's Snippets Playground
#277 AAG at Craft your passion
#34 Lots of layers at Crafty Gals Corner

I'll be back on Friday with another creation, so I hope you'll join me then.
