Stitching @ The Crafty Pad

Mornings beautiful peoples :)
It is time for a new challenge at .... 

This week the challenge is ... 
Stitching - Real or Faux
Well, we all know this is going to be easy for me :$ 

I don't know how this is possible, but I am still a few cards short for the Christmas list!  Yeah!  Mrs Christmas here should have that base well and truly covered but ahem, seems I am still lacking a few!  So with time somewhat precious at the moment, I am cramming a few of my "must to do's" in with this weeks challenge :)

 I called on the Merry Christmas Sentiments from The Crafty Pad Designs again this week!
Honestly, there is a sentiment for everyone and every occasion in this set, they are so handy to have!

 I popped some lace behind the distressed sentiment, mounted it on a glittered scalloped circle and jazzed it up with some tiny pearls.

 A pearl flourish from Flourish with a Bling some seam binding and a bow with a brad center made up the remainder of the embellishments.

 Side view.

There is really not much to this card, I have used one piece of DP for the whole card, distressed all the edges, added stitching and matted onto Kraft.  For the circle behind the sentiment I gave it a lick of gold and brown glitter for a slight bling look and added the seam binding bow with brad and pearl flourish.

As mentioned I am chasing time with this piece.  I really loved and wanted to play along with The Shabby Tea Room this week, their inspirational pic (below) is just magical and they were calling for neutral colors, ribbon or twine and a sentiment.  So I bounced off their challenge for mojovation :)
