"Thinking of You" Card for Kaboodle Doodles Challenge #138: Stitching

Kaboodle Doodles' Challenge #138 is "Stitching". You could submit any project as long as it fits the challenge theme. Winner to be drawn randomly with sponsor prize of 4 images from Robyn's Fetish Tues, October 3, 2012 at US timezone. Participants have until Sun., October 1, 2012 to link their entries at the Kaboodle Doodles Challenge Blog.

I have been utilizing stitching on most of my cards especially for my designer cards for submission except when I decided to create are digital cards.  This challenge has always been dear to me eversince I started in this hobby.  For this I've re-created another card of which the 1st I sent over as a token to my friend and team head over at a cardmaking site I was previously with.  I believe she will hold it dear and close to her heart as well.

With the above, here's my re-created card with a bits of variation here and there.  I guess I got the tickle just thinking of coming up with a better version than the 1st card I've designed.  This card utilized both faux and stitching by hand.  I have yet to overcome the learning obstacle of using my mini sewing maching for some machine stitching action.
