Wow 3 weeks in a row I have managed to do a challenge from Our Daily Bread designs. This week it is using piercing or real stitching on your card.  I opted to go for actual hand stitching using DMC floss using the back stitch, it is a bit time consuming so I did it while watching TV.  You can find out more of the details about the challenge HERE on their blog .

I was in need of a Birthday card for my girlfriend who lives here in town so this will be hand delivered :)

Sewing has been done around the edges.
Our Daily Bread designs- All Ocassion Sentiments stamp
Spellbinders- Long Classic Rectangle and Back to basics tags, heartfelt creations- Delicate Asters dies
Heartfelt Creations - Delicate Asters stamp
Melissa Frances- Tara paper (for background)
DCWV- Earth prints paper (behind the sentiment tag)
The Flowers were colored with pencils, the leaves with copic marker
Queen and Co. Twinkle Goosebumps on tag die
Martha Stewart - Butterfly punch
Forever in time - Pearls (center of butterfly)

We are once again having alot of rain, but I am thankful it isn't snow that alot of the country has gotten, but we are very cold in the 40's which is just crazy for this time of year down here. 
Hope wherever you are you are having a great day no matter the weather.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and your sweet comments!
