CHNC challenge 134: stitching

Today's CHNC challenge 134 is all about 'stitching'. One of the sponsors, Craftybren's Embroidered Embellishments, has joined me as a guest designer and has done a wonderful card with embroidery. My card doesn't have such intricate stitching, but rather some stitching on an offcut of some wrapping paper that I bought some years ago (it was far too good to use as wrapping paper - it has the feel of handmade paper).  I mounted the stitched paper on to a scrap piece of striped paper.

 I've used images kindly supplied by Floppy Latte Designs -' Christmas prayer silhouette' and 'Christmas 9', colouring the stained glass window with copics and adding some glittered stars raised with 3D foam.

This is also for:
