Hello - it's Saturday and that means another Christmas challenge over on the 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown and this week Patricia would like to see some stitching on our cards - real or faux

Here is my card

Needles and thread are hard to find in my house so I went with the faux stitching! I drew the stitches on with a fine end of a marker pen.

Stamps: Delightful Dozen, Pines and Poinsettias (retired)
Ink: Early Espresso, Chery Cobbler, Always Artichoke
Card Stock:Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Always Artichoke, Naturals Ivory
