Simon says stamp challange and a few others!

Hi all, said there would be something soon. I made this card for 2 challanges, one on do crafts, and the other on Simon Says Stamp Challange blog. The sketch has been designed by Claire Curd, which you can find details about on the do crafts website, Simon Says Stamp wanted us to create a card with stitching. It is the first time I have used stitching. I dont know what I think of it really, but I did enjoy doing it, and I am pleased with the finished result. I also inked the edges of the image, which I have also never done, again i am pleased with the end result. So without further ado, heres is the card eventually I think it will a happy birthday wife card, I think!
