Embellish Magazine Challenge - Stitching

This challenge was to use one of my absolute favorite techniques which is stitching. I love the look that stitching gives cards. It adds interest without going too over the top. Well, sometimes I go over the top but nevermind that.

To be honest, I actually had a hard time deciding what I wanted to do. I had a couple ideas in mind which didn't turn out the way I liked when I assembled the card so I scrapped them. If you really really wanna see what one of them looks like, I'll post it.. but only if you ask.

Yesterday I came across a really cute print on The Scoop (http://www.orangebeautiful.com/blog/post.php?post_id=1364) which was the inspiration behind this card. After handwriting the sentiment, I thought it looked a little bare so I added the stitched flower to it. Yes, that flower is all handmade. If you guys want a tutorial on how I did that, let me know in the comments and I'll make a video.
