Christmas Stitching

One more Christmas card to add to my stash.  Making one card a week all through the year is going to make holiday preparations so much easier.
The challenge this week at 52 CCT is to use real stitching on your card.  
The pattern for my Christmas baubles is from Stiching Cards. You can find the pattern HERE
The patterns are super easy to follow and add an elegant look to your cards.
Whitle I was stitching this card, my husband asked me what I was making.  I held it up and showed it to him.  He said, "Oh, it's a fishing pole and bobbers!"  Bless his heart!
Anyway, I hope you join us for this challenge and I can't wait to see how you add stitching to your cards.

Card Details:
Christmas Baubles pattern from Stitchingcards

Entered in following challenges:
4 Crafty Chicks: Sparkle and Shine (I used sparkly gold thread on the ornaments)
Crafty Girls Creations: anything goes
ABC Christmas Challenge: S is for Silent
Winter Wonderland: Tradtional Christmas

Julie, of all the cards you've made for 52CCT, I do believe this is my very favorite! :) The stitched ornaments are amazing, and the pastel color scheme you've chosen is so pretty and elegant. It's a stunning card!
