Stitching Real or Faux @ Crafty Ann's Challenge

Good morning folks! 

It's time for a new challenge over at 

This week it would have to be my all time favorite
Stitching - Real or Faux

It would have to be a rare day for me not to get out the old needle and thread on a card so it wasn't a hard challenge, but, it was FUN! and that is what it is all about :)

Today I have had a play with the gorgeous Crafty Ann's Sewing Sheet (you can find it HERE), from the sheet I used the sweet embroidery hoop with flower.  While I added stitching to my card I also stitched the flower design and added a little bead for the flower center.

As always we have a fab prize for one lucky person who plays along with us this fortnight. 
Your choice from  
You could win -
