H2H Challenge - Stitched Card

I'm back! After a wonderful holiday, I am all revved up to create again! 

This card is for this week's Heart 2 Heart Challenge, which requires stitching, one of my favourite techniques. Depending how you do it, it can be a very time consuming technique but it adds so much to both cards and scrapbook pages and I use it often, particularly on my layouts. 
Here, I stitched around the outside of the card as well as around the flourish. I alternated pink and turquoise floss around the flourish, just for variety. 


Supplies used are CTMH unless otherwise noted: 

Paper: Dotty for You Paper Pack, Lucy Paper Pack, White Daisy Cardstock, Black Cardstock, Pear Cardstock
Stamps: Love Life
Inks: Lagoon, Cotton Candy, Black
Accessories: Paradise Paper Flowers, Bitty Buds Assortment, Art Philosophy Cartridge, Buttons - Pink Assortment, Buttons - Basic Assortment, Embroidery Floss - Pink, Turquoise (not CTMH), Border Punch (not CTMH), Piercing Tool, Needle, Bitty Sparkles, Sharpie Markers - Pink, Turquoise (not CTMH)
