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. 

Enjoy, 
Alyson
