Lets Get Stitchy at Try it on Tuesday

Hi Folks,

Its time for another Challenge at Try it on Tuesday and this time we would love you to get 'Stitchy' these can be real or 'faux'.
For my card, I have used Stampendous Rose Corset, coloured with Distress Markers, I also stamped the edge of a swirl stamp in Tumbled Glass around the edge, before stitching.  The paper from K&Co  was also stitched and all distressing was done with Antique Linen and Vintage Photo inks. The small tag is Katzelkraft.  The rose is a TH Tattered Florals die.
The rest of the DT have some fabulous creation to show, so please pop over here to take a look.  But don't forget, you can only link up to 5 challenges, including ours. We are again sponsored by http://www.crafty-emblies.org/  who are offering a £10 voucher for our January winner.

I am entering this in:
  Our Creative Corner - Shabby Chic
  ATCs & Cards with Attitude - Add a Tag
  Make It Monday - Anything Goes
  Card Making Mamas - So Girly

Before I go, I would just like to say 'hello' to my new followers, thank you for choosing to follow my crafting journey.

Thanks for looking

Hi Avril,
This is simply gorgeous - love the delicate, feminine colours and the rose is beautiful. The stitching gives a lovely vintage look. I really must get around to trying it on my cards - I bought a sewing machine last year and haven't got past reading the instructions yet! xx
