From a LO to a Card

There are so many designers out there who can make amazing cards AND scrapbook layouts. That's just unfair, people. I know that they are awfully similar and use the same products, but for some reason my LOs never look as good as (some of) my cards. Therefore, I am on the ScrapTiffany Design Team to make cards. However, my uber talented, fellow DT member, Bev, decided to give us a LO sketch for our challenge this week. That means DOUBLE the challenge for me because I've got to make it work for a card. Yay. Here's Bev's great sketch:

And here's what I came up with:

My simple style had to get rid of the rectangles, but you can tell that the sketch drove this card. Can't you? LOL. Oh, and the stitching would've looked even better with some colored thread, but I don't know how to put the bobbin back in. What am I going to do when the white thread runs out.

Are you up for the challenge? Show us what you got by linking your project in the comments section of this ScrapTiffany post. You'll be eligible for a $25 GC from Sierra Metal Designs.
