I love how stitching looks on a card.  Its either a great finishing touch or a wonderful embellishment.  In this card its both.  The card was cute but too plain until I stitched the squares. It really made the card pop!

Stamps are from Stampin UP!, Just Because.  Ink is from their new colors, 2012-2013.  I absolutely love the richness of these colors. Bird and branch are from Memory Box dies and the sentiment is from Hero arts.
