DCM's Weekly Dare - 20/20 Vision....

This week at Daring Card Makers it's our Kathy's Turn to set the dare and a beauty it is too, The dare is to use 20/20 Vision for your cards.We'd like you to use 20 of one particular thing on a card - be it blooms, papers, brads, ribbons the choice is yours - you can use other things too, but there must be 20 of one item/component - not 20 things altogether, that would be too easy.For instance, can you use 20 different papers on one card? 20 Ribbons?Or 20 Blooms - well surely that one sounds easy...
Have you worked it out?.... it's 20 lengths of stitching.... Well Stitching is really a big part of my design work.. and I thougth I'd see if I could fit 20 different lengths of stitching into my card and I did... 1 length (no stopping, so it counts as 1 length) around the top, side & bottom of spotted PP, 2 lengths top & bottom of the scolloped PP, 6 lengths of stitching in the mauve flower, 10 lengths of stitching in the orange flower, & 1 circle length of stitching in the little flower... there you have it 20 length's of stitching...
Pretty bits I've used to make Jenny's B'day card are - Bazzill Cardstock, Chatterbox PP,
Heidi Swapp Blossom, Making Memories Chipboard flowers,
Basic Grey - Holly Cow Rub-On, sei buttons, brad,
and ofcourse can't do 20 lengths of stitching without my sewing machine now can I....
so have you Dared To DARE yet....... COME ON I DARE YOU!!!!!

OMG!! where do you girls come up with these ideas?? It certainly is a beauty!

Stitching was my first thought too Gill, I will have to see if I can come up with something a little different to your gorgeous card :)
