Passion for Promarkers again - Challenge 78!

Yes, another week has been and gone and I'm here again with my card for the Stitching and distressing challenge at PFP set by the most cleverest Sue C!!  Firstly though, can I thank you all for the amazing cards for my challenge last week- so difficult to pick my top five, but you can check them out later on the PFP challenge blog here.
Sue's asked for cards with stitching, either real or fake, and distressing.  Well, I went for real stitching which actually looks quite distressed!!!  I.E. not in any semblance of a straight line and I had to go over some of it again as I had problems!!  Don't mind though as I've concealed the worst bits and it matches the general distressed ambience, don't you think!!

I'm loving my Tildas again at the moment- I think they're right on the money with these latest releases!  However, my daughter did ask how she could possibly kiss anyone under the mistletoe without a mouth!!

Used some wonderfully Christmassy Webster's Pages for my card - the only downside is that they're double sided and I know that on the back of one piece that I've used is a gorgeous little Christmas birdie - what a waste!!  The candy cane is a Sizziz die that I've then coloured with my PM's and added some glossy accents to the berries.   
 I've used lots of stickles on the flowers, Tilda's dress and the mistletoe berries, a few pins and there you have it!  Not traditionally Christmas colours but I like it!  I followed the sketch over on the Allsorts Challenge Blog, I just flipped the image for the layout of the flowers.
We have another great sponsor this week, Stampeezee, with a £10 voucher to spend with them here!!
