Faux stitching for CHNC challenge 134

Another card for my CHNC challenge 134: stitching.  I've used 'winter' digital papers supplied by Floppy Latte Designs, stamping with a favourite Inkadinkado angel stamp, with some faux stitching creating a border using a Sakura gelli roll pen.

Two of the printed papers were torn around perspex oval templates. The angel stamp was inked with versamark and heat embossed with detail silver embossing powder. Snowflakes were cut with some of the paper using a Docrafts punch. The sentiment is a left over from a Kanban kit bought some years ago.
