Textured and stitched

Here's a card I made for a few challenges.



The colors are from a previous color challenge - CC301 - gray, marina mist (blue), and concord crush (dark purple). I love how these colors look together!



To add some texture I used basic gray textured cardstock! The white piece was stamped with blue and purple for the sentiment, then I textured it with an embossing folder in my Big Shot. I added some ribbon and a scallop trim edge to match. The technique lover's challenge today was to do stitching (or faux stitching!) Very easy to do. Just pierce holes and connect the dots with a pen.



The layout is from my favorite layout site - Clean & Simple Stamping. Fall-to-layout #121

I layered pieces from 2 different circle punches as well as the boho blossoms punch with a rhinestone in the center.
