Embellish Color Challenge with Stitching

I haven't participated in an Embellish Challenge in a while but thought I would give this one a go.  The deadline is almost here but if you want to check it out go here.

The concept for this card came to me quickly but it seemed to take longer than it should have to execute.  I'm not sure why that is.

I started with PaperTrey Ink's (PTI) White cardstock and created an A2 card.
I used PTI's Aqua Mist and Nestabilities Labels 11 to created a frame for the main attraction the Dress!
It is from Gina K -Retro Boutique was stamped on the white cardstock as well as on PTI's Itty Bitty Polka Dot paper in Sweet Blush and then cut out.
The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn sew Lovely set and stamped in a light brown.  I masked part of the curly Y and then stitched a new curly ending with embroidery floss (433).
I needed to incorporate some Kraft and my sister suggested a sale tag tied to the dress.  I couldn't come up with anything small enough so I stamped Sale in black on an oval cut with the smallest Nestibilities oval.  The sale sentiment is from the same set as the Dress.

Here are a couple of closer looks at the dress and the stitching.

Thanks for stopping by,  Jessica
