I decided to use the chipboard heart shapes from the SU on board chipboard. I Thought it would be fun to use the negative image with the smaller positive heart image. The paper is K&Company from Michael's and matches great with close to cocoa, celery, and blush blossom. I admit that is one thing I do look for when I buy patterned paper....are the colors easy to match with SU cardstock.:) When I covered the heart frame with paper...I gave it a little extra sanding as I love the distressed look you get when you sand designer paper. I now LOVE eyelets since I bought my new cropodile...what a fabulous tool!
There is a lot of stitching on this card for a very practical reason...I can't find my glue! This card was put together with stitching, red line tape and glue dots.:) Off to Michael's I go! CUL8TR!

OMGoodness!! This is awesome!! I love the distressed look, the real stitching, the layout - the everything!!
If I had to really sew a card together, it just wouldn't happen!! Fantastic job ... it's in my favorites ... I can faux stitch *grin*
