Once again popping at the last minute with my Make it Monday challenge entry. In case you missed it Nichole has a wonderful video on her blog depicting how Heather Nichols stamps and then stitches on her cards. You can see it here. Stitching does take a little time but I think the effort is worth it as it adds soo much interest and texture to projects. Below is a layout I did with stitching added to it. I definitely like it more now that I took the time to stitch. Sorry about the poor photo..daylight was dwindling when I took it!

I stitched little veins in the leaves.
