Some birthday stitching

I decided that I wanted to do something a little different for my friend's birthday card. I wanted to practice my random stitching along with some collage. Here was the result...
Birthday Stitching
I really love the black, purple, and red together. I already had pink thread on my machine, so I went with that. The card is a tri-fold, so I only decorated the front top flap.

This was a great way to use up fabric scraps. I had fun putting it together and layering it all while not knowing what the final product would look like. The pic below is what it looks like opened up!

I hope she likes it! I'm pretty pleased.

The pink thread really makes a statement on that purple! I like the dimension that layering with fabric gives.
