Clean & Simple Monday - Stitching

Today's CAS challenge on SCS (CAS158) is to use stitching on your card.  It can be real or faux...so have fun with it.

Here's my super simple card



I just stitched across my card randomly then covered the inside stitches with a strip of matching cardstock so that I could secure the ends of the thread.  I crocheted the flower with embroidery floss.  That's a fantastic find that's inexpensive to make and saves lots of $$ on the pre-made kind.

I'm entering this in the Kraft Journal's Make it Monday Fantastic Finds challenge
