Anything Goes #53 Challenge - Stitching real or faux

The new challenge at Anything Goes is stitching either real or faux. I made this card for my grandson's 2nd birthday - not that he was interested in the card - just his new toys! His mum keeps all the cards so maybe he'll appreciate it when he's older lol.

The stamp is a Molly Bloom stamp available from The Craft Den and the papers were freebies which I have had for ages. The netting is builders scrim which I embossed with a gorgeous blue embossing powder - very effective I must say.  I used the same embossing powder to triple emboss the chipboard letters and number. I added some blue raffia from my stash and the happy Birthday sentiment. Really pleased with the result even if Ben wasn't impressed!
