Sweet Stop and Our Daily Bread

This card combines the weekly Sweet Stop sketch with the Our Daily Bread challenge to use stitching on your card. We could either use faux or real stitching, and I decided to use a real needle and thread. I started by stamping a flourish image (actually two different images) from Inkadinkado. I then poked holes with my paper piercer all along the lines. Then using DMC floss I back-stitched along the lines and and used french-knots for the dots. It took FOREVER, but since I turned it into a mother's day card for my grandmother, it was worth it. I don't know if I would do it again, but it was something fun to try.
