 Supplies:  Papermania Textured cardstock, PTI Dark Chocolate ink and 
chocolate cardstock, Papermania Stamp set, SRM Sticker - Thanks, fine 
detail cutting scissor, Fiskars Upper Crest border punch, Docrafts card blank, 
machine stitching, clear embossing powder and versamark ink.

I was playing around with clear embossing powder and decided to create an embossed background for some "furniture".  Not very evident in the first shot - so here's a close up.
I dug out my Chatsworth Collection stamp set from last year featuring this furniture by Papermania, stamped with Dark Chocolate ink and cut out.  Added some machine stitching (slightly wonky straight line!! oops!)

Thanks for peeking, hope you are having a great day.

Deirdre I am so glad you included the second photo which really shows the beautiful design. Personally I think "wonky" stitching is very attractive. This is gorgeous.
