Color Throwdown Challenge #141 & Ribbon Carousel #2

This card is for a couple of challenges, I used this week's Color Throwdown Challenge colours:
I also wanted to participate in a new blog's weekly challenge, the Ribbon Carousel (RCC2) who has a Shabby Chic challenge.  So I pulled out my Mayberry papers which have a vintagey feel to them, made a paper flower and grunged it up a bit with some cocoa ink:

Karen, I first saw this card on the CTMH BBs, and I just had to come to your blog to check it out.

I really like this card--the stitching is gorgeous!!! The zig and the zag of the stitching is perfectly spaced.

You've inspired me to create a card with this look. When I do, I hope you won't mind if I give you credit for inspiring me. :-)
