You're So Tweet!

Morning crafters. It's time for a brand new challenge at Whimsy Stamps  - Stitching: Real or FauxNow stitching is not something I often do on my cards so I opted for the faux version ;-)
For this challenge I've made a card with a cute illustrated sentiment by Raindrop EchoDesigns. I used a paper piercer to make small holes all around the sentiment strip and added faux stitching detail with a 0.1 Letraset fineliner. I think it looks fab, what do you think…? I kept the rest of the card quite mininal to allow the stitching to stand out, I also mounted the sentiment strip of card onto 3d foam pads...

Buttons - Crafty Ribbons (I won a fantastic selection of buttons recently in a challenge, thank you Ali at Crafty Ribbons x)
Other - 0.1 Letraset fineliner, twine kraft cardstock
