Peachy Keen Challenge #10 - Card with Faux Stitching

Hello! It's time again for another challenge over on the Peachy Keen blog! The challenge this week is to create a card, and include some "faux" stitching on it. I just recently splurged and got a Silhouette Cameo (squeal!!!) - so I decided to use an image from the Silhouette store for my card today! Here is what I made:
I also squeezed a lot of Peachy sets on this card! Here they are:

I used some Authentique 6x6 paper, and stamped the Grampa's pajamas background on the gold color - but only on the top, to leave room for the sentiment, which is from the Vivienne and Friends set..  
I cut out the image with my Silhouette, added a face from the Wide-Eyed Kids Assortment, and did a bunch of stitching. I then wrapped some Papertrey Ink twine around the card, and tucked a little into the tea cup to make steam (not sure if it gave it the effect I was hoping for?) One tip on the twine - twist the ends between your fingers a bit to fray the ends - then it doesn't look so sharp and blunt. 
Used foam adhesive to attach it to the card, added some more faux stitching around the gold, then added a couple of stick on pearls.  
I love this sentiment on this card - really this is a perfect card for my hubby! Nothing better than a cup of hot tea or coffee, and a pile of books to read! And I love how masculine the colors are together. 
Thanks for stopping by! Make sure and head on over to the Peachy Keen blog to join in on the challenge for a chance to win this weeks prize - and check to see if you were picked Top Peach from last weeks challenge! Can't wait to see what you make!!!
