Trapeze dare

Shelly double dog dared me to make a trapeze card.  I'm thinking that I must have done it wrong, because Shelly's is so much prettier!

Stitching is done with scrapper's floss, so I didn't need a needle, but it was perhaps too thick and stiff for this technique.  The stamp is an old TAC one, and the patterned paper is Tim Holtz Shabby Chic.  The heart is punched and embossed, but you can't see the embossing well in this scan, I'm sorry to say.

Challenges:
Bunny Zoe - celebrations
Crafty Bloggers - shabby chic
Lexi's Creations - monochrome
Scrapper's Delights - love
Penny Black - tuquoise, white, blue
