Black & Gold

Here is a little card I created for two challenges:

So I used a prick and stitch template to pierce out the design and then stitched it all in (by hand!!) with gold thread.
I edged the stitched piece of card using a gold leaf marker pen and then mounted it using foam pads onto a black card blank.

I would like to enter my card into these challenges:

Less Is More Challenge Blog - this week the theme is sewing, the details can be found HERE
