DS4J challenge: Stitching

It's a new challenge at Digistamps4Joy and it's all about STITCHING - Real or Faux!
This card ended up not looking at ALL like I started when planning. I was going to use the DS4J images "Button set" but then when I matched my colored images with the DP I wanted to use it didn't look right. So I switched my image to "Dress on a hanger" and cut it out to glue to a "real" hanger and that looked a lot better. The dress was actually printed on DP as well (something I seldom do) and the top part covered in Stickles. Lots of bling added as well :D

 The stitching was done by piercing a row of holes down the right-hand panel and then using a needle and some gold embroidery floss to stitch the row. Some bling was added in-between.
The close-up shows the Stickles and DP pattern. For some reason the Crystal Stickles made some lines on the top show up green. Quite nice I think :D

I think this is my "shiniest" card ever :D

Please join us at DS4J with some Stitching.
