A stitch in time

There's a new challenge on Simon Says Challenge and its for Stitching faux or real. Damon the sewing machine has never returned downstairs so I still haven't got over my phobia of using him for stitching. So I decided to faux stitch just using a thin tip brown pen, the trick then is to know when to stop. I knew this Penny Black stamp was perfect for the challenge and I used BG Wisteria pack and for the punched flowers and the sentiment is stampin up.
Do check the other fab DT cards especially has we welcome Kim on our team and we have Greta has our Guest who makes fab cards and she's only 11, she shares a blog with her Mum here.
