Faux or Real

Good morning everyone! It's time for another challenge at Seize the Birthday.

This week we have have an option of adding a topping which is to use stitching.....Faux or Real!

I love to use my sewing machine on my projects so I pulled out some gold thread to stitch around the top panel of my card.

Cardstock: SU, Bazzill, Neenah
Stamp: Cas-ual Friday
Other: Versamark, emb. powder,sequins, Gelatos
Water colour is a trend in paper crafting right now so on my scrap weekend I pulled out my Gelatos (which I had yet to do) and had my first try at water colouring! I like it and I know I will play some more with this technique.

I am entering my card in Virginia's View Challenge.

I hope I see your card over at Seize the Birthday. I wonder if you will use any stitching....faux or real!!
