Desert Blooms

This month at Scrap Our Stash the challenge is STITCHING....  There is a prize too....see it at the right in my sidebar.  Here is my first DT layout:
"The foreground (yellowish paper where photos are matted): I misted some 8.5x11 embossed floral paper, decided where my photos were going to go and then hit the sewing machine. I stitched in yellow...all around the oustide of the embossed paper and in a pattern under where the horizontal photo was going. But it did not show up very well, so I went back over it in the maroon color...just went crazy and let the machine go and had fun playing.  
Background: Then I decided I wanted to distress and "peek a boo" the background paper, so I calculated where the V-tears were going to go and stitched the background floral under the solid maroon, making V stitches where I planned (in pencil). Then I distressed & tore all around the outer stitching....
