A stitch in time saves nine....

Hello all,
Here with a second post for today...this one for a challenge over at the Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge Blog.  It is Challenge #44 - "Stitch it Up" and you have to use stitching - faux or real - on your card. 

Here is what I came up with for the challenge:
 I used hunter green floss to stitch on the Mexican Tile Pattern Frame Die (FRM149) from Cheery Lynn Designs.  I stitched it over an evening of television while watching one of my favorite movies "Pride and Prejudice" - the 2005 version with Kiera Knightly and Matthew MacFadyen, Donald Sutherland and Judi Dench.   I will definitely do this again as I love the way it turned out! 
I then stamped this lovely Pure Innocence Stamp called "Snow Day" from MFT Stamps for my focal piece and added a portion of a "2 of hearts die" (DL128) to the left edge to play off of the sentiment.

The ribbon is some red hug-snug seam binding positioned at each corner of the card and I added some snowflakes and a bling to the corner without the bow.  The hunter green card base as well as the red scalloped mat piece were also created with dies from Cheery Lynn Designs. 

Thanks for looking at my card.  I had fun with this challenge and cannot wait to go see what others have created.
