Papertake challenge - A stitch in time

Edit: I wasn't really happy with my first card; I wanted the rosebud paper to look stitched to the background card so I had another go at printing directly onto the card.  This time I was a bit more successful, but got it a bit too far to the right so I just added a bit of ribbon down the side to camouflage the wide margin and moved the bobbin to the bottom corner  - I think it's better.*




Thought I'd have a go at this week's Papertake Weekly challenge, stitch-in-time as I have this cute little digistamp from pinkpetticoat to go with the theme of stitching on your card (faux or real).  I also used Pink Petticoat Vintage Rose collection paper for the background.  


*This was my first card:

I opened the rose background paper in Craft Artist and used one of the brushes in the software to do my stitching. I messed up when it came to printing directly onto my card blank so had to cut it down and mounted it onto a scalloped edge card instead.  The little button was one I cut from one of hubbie's old shirts he was throwing out.  I will remove the pin before sending it to anyone though - don't want to cause them any more pain.lol
