Challenge #6 - Stitching

This weeks challenge over on House Mouse & Friends is stitching. Here's the card i made.
It's not one of my best cards but i seem to be going through a crafters block at the moment and i'm struggling to make anything. Don't suppose it helps having so much going on in real life but i won't bore you with that!!

I do own a sewing machine but after a short while of having it a messed up the tension and haven't touched it since, so on this card it is all faux stitching but because i felt guilty for kinda cheating i stitched in 2 buttons with elasticated ribbon.

Hope you manage to find time and join in with the challenge. x

An absolutely gorgeous creation. Love how you put two totally different BG pattern designs together and everything still seems to blend perfectly. I am sure there are some lovely gifts in those boxes ...

What do you mean cheating?? The faux stitching is great! That's not cheating...that's a technique :) I LOVE your card...and I don't see a crafters block in there anywhere! I wish we lived close so we could have a stamping party!
