Little Friends - PINK Challenge!

How could I not love this challenge...GET YOUR PINK ON!  The Paper Players have issued the challenge to use Rose Red, Regal Rose, and Pink Pirouette.  I LOVE pink so of course I had to compete! I chose to use the Little Friends stamp set because it exudes girlishness to match a pink challenge.

Check out to see the other cards for this challenge (PP59).

I added faux and real "stitching" to the card, inspiration from challenge HSS All Stiched Up Challenge #80.  Check out their blog to see more cards made using stitching.

How to do the stitching: 

I punched holes using the handheld hole punch, every 1/2" from the top to the bottom of the layer, then carefully wound Linen Thread through the holes in the form of an "X" all the way to the top.
