Oldie but a Goodie Challenge - Stitching

This fortnight, I've chosen the theme for our challenge over at Oldie but a Goodie, which is:

(Real or faux...it's up to you)

I've used scraps of paper from an old BasicGrey pad (called 'Eskimo Kisses') to make a Christmas tree...using some faux stitching along the edges of the strips. I also used faux stitching around the edge of the panel...to make it look more realistic, I punch holes using my CutterBee Bug before drawing on the stitches using a black gel pen. The sentiment stamp is from the 'Sentiments' set by Hero Arts.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to the Oldie but a Goodie Challenge.
