I went with faux stitching and a lot of it! LOL I stitched up the sides and across the bottom. I stitched in the middle and around the edges. I even stitched the tiny little banner in place! All the stitching made me think of quilting so I decided to make the whole thing look like a big ole quilt! I embossed a couple of the layers with the Square Lattice EF and then used a zig zag stitch and a straight stitch.
I really like the faux stitching technique. I find it relaxing to poke all of those tiny little holes. I added Dazzling Details to the flower to give it just a little bit of shimmer.
This was really a fun card to make!
