The story behind this card is a bit funny perhaps and the finished card is actually because of a huge mistake I made. I did the card with a black panel in the beginning leaving just a small white border around it. I drew some faux stitching lines around the edges and embossed the sentiment in white. Then I decided that maybe I should spray some Perfect Pearls Mist on the card, so I did. Unfortunately I managed to get a little bit more mist on the black panel than I had anticipated so I took a paper towel and started wiping some away. It would have worked out just fine if I had made sure that my white pen (the one I used to draw the stitching) was completely dry. In this case it wasn't and I ended up smudging the stitching lines and got white ink everywhere. Not pretty at all!
So I removed the black piece and I was planning on redoing the whole thing when I realized the card looked a lot better without the panel. So I just stamped the sentiment in black instead and the card was done. Yay!
