Frame out of card and material

Hi all

A new challenge starts over on Brown Sugar  we are sponsored this week by


The theme is Stitches fake or real 

I have taken the theme stitches and done something a bit different, I was playing around with this image  and made a frame out of card for it, I then thought plain card look a it boring and found a silk top I was throwing out so decided to cut this up I have kept the stitches on the material showing to fit the theme, not that you can see that well on the photos. also when I took the photo the picture must have moved out of position, so its not the best picture to show you but I hope you get the idea, I was unsure about it but when my Daughter came home she loved it and wanted it up on her wall.



I would like to enter this frame into the following challenges
