The Pixie Cottage Sketch #63 and or Stitching Challenge

For my Pixie Cottage Design Card for this Wednesday I used the stamp Pleasant Porch by ARTish.
I simply adore all of the background stamps that are available over at the Pixie Cottage.  I colored and shaded my porch with copics and SU ink only orange.  My card stocks are by Sassafras and Bazzill.  Flowers are by Prima.

It's Wednesday so it means another challenge here at The Pixie Cottage!
As always we have 2 parts to the challenge and you can choose either or both to play along with.
We have a fabulous sketch and our theme this week is "stitching"

Remember you can use the sketch or the optional technique or both!
The randomly picked winner will win two stamps of their choice from the Pixie Cottage Collection. The winner and the Top 3 favorites will be announced on the Friday after the challenge ends.
