Seize The Birthday ~ stitching faux or real

Welcome again to another Seize the Birthday Challenge.  This time we have the topping of adding some stitching, either real or faux, your choice.  And of course you can always make a card without the toppings.
                                                     Add stitching either Real or Faux 

Have you noticed I love the stitched mats from Lil' Inkers?
This is the oval one that my BFF gave me for Christmas!
And can you believe I have a SIL whose birthday is actually
March 17!  YEAH, a St. Paddy's day baby!
Of course I had to make a card for him.
I hope you will play along and add either real stitching to your card,
or you can go with faux stitching.
Then link it up to Seize the Birthday Challenge
and check out what the other team members have made for your inspiration!
PTI paper:  new leaf, white
