365 Cards - On Pins and Needles

For today's 365 Cards challenge, I had to incorporate pins for decoration (I chose safety pins) and needles for the purpose of stitching somewhere on the card. Besides that, anything goes!  I used some patterned paper from Making Memories... it's actually from the Wedding 8x8 paper pack, but you can't go wrong with black and white.  Also, if you want your hand-stitched details to look nice, do what I did.  Use a safety pin or paper piercer to lay out the holes first, then go back and stitch.  I put it on top of some fun foam and just pierced straight through it.  That way you don't accidentally bend the paper or anything like that.  Enjoy!
