Lil Lolita Boutique Challenge #16

Good Afternoon everyone!!  WOW its Thursday again and its time for a new challenge over at Lil Lolita Boutique!!  So this week we have a great challenge for you its:

STITCHING - Real or Faux

and here is my card, I have made a Christmas card, because well, I thought I should make a start on them and then by doing one every now and then I wont be sick to death of them if I try and make them all at once!! LOL... so on my chrissy card I have used Machine stitching, but you can't really see it well, my cotton is a bit too thin I think.  Plus the sewing machine decided to not work properly, so I finished it off with a bit of faux around the outside of Lylah.

Hope you like my card!!!
