Happy Birthday~Stitching with Some Odd Girl

Finally I got some time today to put a few cards together.  This past week I had strep throat and spent a little time on my couch.  I HATE being sick.  I wanted to craft, but just didn't feel up to it and I had so many projects due or just wanted to do.  So I brought a bunch of markers down and colored while watching HGTV. :)  Today I finally got a little time to put something together.  I missed the last challenge at Some Odd Girl and I am down to the wire on this one.  The challenge is to do some stitching on your project.  I love to stitch on my cards so I really wanted to do this one!  I used Balloon Kaylee for my card.
I am in love with this paper by My Mind's Eye. It is from the Lost collection. I loved that little vintage sewing machine on this paper and since the challenge is stitching I thought it was the perfect paper!!!

I am going to add this to the following challenges as well:
Addicted to Stamps has stitching as its challenge this week.
Card Cupids has anything goes.
Stamptactular Sunday Challenge has just saying for this weeks challenge.
2Sisters Challenge has sentimental for the challenge.
My Sheri Crafts has sew simple.
