Papertrey Ink Alphabet Challenge

This is another card I made for Papertrey Ink's Anniversary. For this one they printed an alphabet of rules and you make a card using at least 3 letters of your first or last name.  I went with:

J - incorporate a few jewels or rhinestones
E - incorporate an emboss resist technique
SS - incorporate some stitching, real or faux
I - use an impression plate or do some sort of dry embossing
C - use at least 5 colors total
A - add a border

Well, 5 out of 6 ain't bad.

I stamped and heat embossed my sentiment and flowers (using Daydreamer + Simply Jane), then I used a white pen to add the frame and faux stitched border.  I dry embossed a second frame/border around the stitching.  I then rubbed a bit of white ink around the saying and flowers (resist technique) and added the turquoise jewels.  I mounted the panel on a piece of cardstock matching the jewels.

That's quite the challenge to incorporate all that! I really like the stitching. :)
