Challenge day

It's my day again at Practical Scrappers- this week we're trying out out stitching techniques. I usually overlook stitching as an option on my page, because I usually don't start out with much of a plan, and  well, I'm an instant gratification type of girl. The faster I can get to the desired effect the better.
Stitching usually provides a very subtle effect, and I'm not so subtle...

So here's what I came up with:

A sheet of kraft paper, some embroidery floss and voila! custom paper! I added a few flowers, pearls, and my favorite mini letters from October Afternoon. It's simpler than usual, but I'm pleased with the result.

I love the way you used your stitching to frame the focal photo! Smart! :) Great page, Erin!
