A Stitch (or maybe more) in Time.....

I have a card to share with you that has very little stamping and quite a bit of stitching, as complicated as it looks, I finished it yesterday afternoon. From transferring the pattern, to piercing it to stitching it, I did it while watching tv. with my hubby. I will link this card to several challenges posted at the end of this one, here is my card.


Like I said, it looks time consuming but it's really not. I think it's relaxing and, since I like doing stuff like this, I enjoyed every minute of the creation of this card.
The only stamping on this panel is from my stash of Thanksgiving stamps, the embossing was done with a Cuttlebug embossing folder.
Here is a close up off all the little holes and the stitching.

Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.
