Another H2H card

Okay, okay... I'm on the design team so I can't officially enter the challenge!  This is the card that was floating around in my head all of last week - but my Bohemian Alphabet stamp set hadn't arrived yet!  I struggled for a few days to get past it, and finally worked out my other paper pieced card.  Sigh.  The original was probably going to have a row of pleated paper instead of the scallop, but I'm very happy with how this turned out.  So here goes:
and here's a close up of the stem - I free handed the design, poked holes and then stitched it with our embroidery floss:

All supplies are CTMH: Stamp sets are Bohemian Alphabet & Thoughts of You; Cardstock is Chocolate, Pear, Sky Blue & Colonial White; Inks are Pear, Sky Blue & Chocolate; Chocolate Ribbon Rounds; Green Embroidery Floss; Corner Rounder.

Very cute card! Love the Bohemian Alphabets and the way you used them. Using chocolate ribbon and the stitching really makes the card.
