Gingersnap Creations Random Redhead Challenge - Stitching

"Stitching" is the theme for this month's Random Redhead Challenge at Gingersnap Creations. On my card I used hand stitching with 2-3 strands of embroidery thread (3 on the french knots to make them fuller). I used a Bazzill stitching template for the flourish and pre-pierced holes for stitching using the stamped words as a guide on the quote. I did machine sew around the card also to frame the center image. Try your hand at stitching on a project and enter it into the challenge - it's open until Dec.12.
