Dies R Us Challenge - Stitches

Hello All...
WOW!  Can you believe it's the 1st of November? 
That means Christmas is right around the corner AND,  it's time for a new challenge
at the Dies R Us Challenge Blog.

And, the theme is:


 (Use a die with STITCHING on it ... any shape & pattern but it must be a DIE and it must have STITCHING.)

The dies I have used on today's card are:
Frantic Stamper - Triptych Village Card Panel
Frantic Stamper - Dies - Triptych Village Card Panel 
Lawn Fawn - Large Cross Stitched Rectangle Stackables Dies 
Lawn Fawn - Small Cross Stitched Rectangle Stackables Dies

After die cutting my Village scene die from white card stock, I glued a couple scrap pieces of goldenrod card stock behind the opening on the church (to make it catch your eye).  I then adhered it to a hand cut piece of black card stock.  Next, I created the frame work using the Lawn Fawn Cross Stitched Rectangle dies.  Lastly I cut the designer paper to fit my entire white card base and put it all together.
