Ever try to make a quick card or project, only to have it go wrong and take more time than planned? That's what happened with this card. I wanted to do some machine stitching but the machine would not cooperate. I could not get the tensions set right. So I ripped out the stitches and instead of starting all over, I have piercing on my card instead. I even stitched a second row of holes on purpose. I decided that it made this card a little "shabby" and therefore, is acceptable.
