Stampin' Chic technique challenge

Thank you for all the kind comments you've left on my blog. My Dad has unfortunately had to go back into hospital as he has an infection, but at least he's somewhere they can look after him!!

For my first card since I've been back I've made a get well card (of course!!) using lots of my lovely birthday pressies. I included faux stitching for last week's Stampin' Chic challenge, but just realised I'm too late and I should have uploaded this last night. Oops!! I've lost track of the days this week!!

Anyway, details of the card are:

Papers - CCSR Big One paper pack
Card - local craft shop, cut with scalloped square nestabilities. Embossed with Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder.
Lettering - Impress die cut stencils
Ribbons - Papermania
Gems - Anita's gemstone wheel
Buttons - from stash
Edges inked with Colorbox fluid chalk in Burnt Sienna
Faux stitching added by pricking with pokey tool and then Whispers brushmarkers.

Thanks also for all the comments about my card in the DoCrafts mag. I was very pleased!! Didn't even know it was in there until I got Sarpreet's comment then rushed off to the shop to get a copy!!!

Thanks for looking!!!
