DS4J Challenge #80 with stitching

Happy Wednesday morning everyone,
A beautiful fresh, clear skies kind of morning. Had some much needed rain yesterday evening, lucky the hail stayed small and only lasted a very short while. More rain is forecast the next few living in hope.

This week I am very fortunate to be hosting the challenge at Digistamps4Joy. The theme I chose is stitching, and before you all throw your hands up in horror at the thought of needle and thread or hauling out the sewing machine....ANY KIND of stitching is acceptable, even faux stitching. So I really do hope you will ALL come and join in the fun this fortnight.
You don't have to use a DS4J image, but of course if you do you will get an extra chance in the draw,
I hope you will come and join in this challenge and show us your lovely creations...any papercraft projects are welcome with an image, digi or stamped.

The DT have made some wonderful cards for your inspiration and I hope you will pop over and see them.

This is the card I made using the image..corset and frills.

 I coloured the image with distress inks and highlighted the stitching on the corset with a glitter pen. You can find it  HERE 
Paper is from a Vintage pad by Marianne Design
The die cut is a Marianne design die, I have had for a little while and not yet used. But I just love it so you will see it more often.
The corner die is from Joy crafts..Noor design.
Sentiment is a freebie from  A Piece of Heart
I machine stitched on 2 corners, but it is lost a little, should have done it all round. I just wished my machine would co-operate and do some zig-zag on my cards.
Finished of with a bow, and pearls.
