Creatalicious challenge June

Hi everyone, I love Creatalicious challenge day...  
and i especially like the challenge this month.

This month we were challenged by Linda to 
Stitch It Up - Show some Stitching Fake or Real..

Using this Layout

and here is what I came up with.  This card was for my husbands workmate who turned 39yrs old 3 days before him.  We had to tease her a little bit about being the old chick.
. (that said.. im a good 3wks older again)
she did get a smile and laugh out of the card, so I did well!

I believe the image is Artist Impressions, Golden Oldies, I got them online last year, this one is a clear stamp set and I got some rubber ones too.. they stamp up so beautifully!
I also used Kaszazz stitching stamps for my faux stitching, I actually like the effect for this.. in the past both real and faux stitching has given me grief.. so having a stamp for it made my day!  these stitching stamps also have cross stiching and zig zag options too.. nearly like my favourite sewing machine!

    Hugs, Linda
