Penny Black Challenge #63 - Stitching

Another week gone, and it's time for another Penny Black Saturday Challenge. Thanks everyone for your entries for last week's colour challenge - an unusual colour combo, and there were some fabulous cards. Hope you will check back with the challenge blog later to see who has won last week's yummy prize pack by Simply Create.
This week we have a change of pace, as we would like to see a particular feature on your projects, namely


This can be real or faux, so it's time to get out your needles and pins (or pens!) and see what you can produce. The only other rule is that we must be able to see a PB stamp or sticker somewhere on your project to qualify for the prize .... talking of which, this week's prize is 2 fab sets of PB stickeroos kindly donated by Tracie.

Here's my card for this week. Don't forget to check out the other DT members' cards for some brilliant inspiration.

Main image: Penny Black "Team Effort" (3980K);
Sentiments: Penny Black "Salutations" transparent set (front); Penny Black "great day" (3419D) inside;
Papers: K&Co "Wild Raspberry";
Supplies: ivory crocheted ribbon and "Friends" charm from Quixotic Paperie; flowers by Floradoodles; Doodlebug sugar coated brads; pearls from my stash;
Tools: pricking tool and ruler to make holes for faux stitching; Martha Stewart "Valentine lace" edge punch; main image shape cut using mega deckle rectangle nesties.

And here's the inside .... I decided to use a cute little charm to fill the space on my smallest mega rectangle, as it is a very long and narrow shape. I've never used a charm inside a card before, but I rather like it :-)

Hope you will find time to join in this week - look forward to seeing your creations. have a lovely weekend!
