Moxie Fab Challenge ( Fun with Floss)!

I don't know what got to me...recently I thought I'd get some floss for my cards. When I went to the craft section at Wal-Mart, there was a large bin of assorted embroidery floss for $ 0.69 each, so I picked up a few! I love sewing floss into the card as it adds a warm and detailed look to handmade cards. Just then I found out about the Moxie Fab Challenge (see here). I got the big needle and thread/floss right to work. Since I'm still infatuated with the Hero Arts digit kit (Bird Cage here). I challenge myself to use floss for this image....here's the result.
 I added the gems on top of the thread to add more interest.

 I think I will incorporate more floss into card-making from now on :)

What creative use of the floss...so many folks do the stitching for borders, but you created such a cool design with the gems too... so cool! It's like embroidery on paper... I think I might have to break out the floss now!
