Some Faux Stitched Cards

It's been a while since I posted some cards, so prepare to be flooded with three today! I joined in a Favorite Techniques Swaps and I picked a faux stitching technique to do. I will say that it is not one of my favorites, but I had wanted to try it and thought that this swap would force me to try it out. I do like how it looks on other talented peoples cards, but I just can't seem to get it to really work for me. Here are three that I made and I decided on the last one to send in for the swap. Enjoy!

I didn't know where to thank you for your gift. I love the cards and box you made to put them in. You are a very talented person. And I do like this card for the technique swap. I am waiting on one person who signed up for two spots but she has been very ill but promises to get them out to me this week. Thanks again, Jennifer

PS My gift to you won't be as impressive. Sorry...
