Ooh La La Stitching challenge.

Good evening all!
Well I should have posted this card first thing this morning but as most of you know I have been very unwell this weekend and unable to really do anything. I went to the doctor this morning thought and was told that I have tonsillitis and prescribed Penicillin and Ibuprofen......thank goodness for medicine.....I already feel 100% better than I did! And thanks to the Ibuprofen I can eat again too as my throat has stopped hurting!
Anyway, back to the challenge at Ooh La La this week, which is
Now I do tend to use faux stitching on my cards from time to time but I thought I would try actual stitching onto the card for a change.

All the stitching was done by hand as I don't have a machine, and though it was time consuming, it was quite therapeutic and rewarding! The image and background papers are from Ooh La La All Dressed Up cd-rom, the lace and pins from my stash. I left a sentiment off because I thought this would be great for all sorts of occasions......and it also fits into the One Stop Craft Challenge - No Sentiment challenge.
Well I now have to crack on for my market on Saturday...I have lost 3 days of work through illness and I'm now very behind! See you all soon :)
