Shabby Chic Card

Another post from me today & am so glad I made it in time for the Lets Get Trendy Now!3 - Day 4 - Stitching. Never done stitching in my cards/LO earlier so I definitely wanted to attempt this. This is also my last card for the series & I genuinely thank - Julie, Amy, Yvonne for their efforts in compiling this series to inspire us all! Had it not been for this I would never have made a card with neons & stitching.

Coming to my card................its a shabby chic style. The base is a kraft CS & DP used is from DCWV - distressed in vintage photo ink & also a distressing tool. The cage is heat embossed in gold. I have stamped the sentiment FLY HIGH on distressed burlap..........perfect for the LO of the card.

The bird is also distressed & then heat embossed in clear EP (well its not a diecut, but I have stamped the image on the wrong side of the DP & then fussy cut!!!).
Now coming to the stitching, its the black line you see along the small birds of the DP so that it appears like a branch (does it???)
