Que Puntada | DEE Feb Challenge

And this is my 5th entry, I believe, to DEE February Challenge

Challenge: Pinterest pin inspiration from one of DEE's Pinterest boards

This time I actually was inspired by several pins found on the Que Puntada board HERE
where you can find creations by Liz, Yoshira and Abby.

 I really like how this card came out even though I had a little mishap at the end when stamping the stitching around the card.... doesn't it always happen like that? :)
First I lay down all the stamps where I wanted them and "picked" them up with a clear block, inked it and stamped it in one shot.
I die cut the faux stitching with PTI dies.  The heart was die cut with a MFT heart die and "embedded" in the card (cut first in place desired, cut again in red and placed in spot).
I stamped again the spool, the scissors and the tiny heart, hand cut them and added on top of the stamped images.  I wrapped some twine on the spool, note that I kept the stamped needle (I could have added pins or a real needle but decided it to leave it).  All the grey items are colored with a sharpie in metallic silver while the measuring tape and sewing machine where colored with Copics.
Finished it with a few embellishments such as enamel dots, button and a TH brad.
Almost forgot that I added a stitched scalloped edge cut using a MCT die.

Hope you can enter!
