Love this card. LOVE. LOVE. LOVE it!!! I was actually looking to try and submit this one for publication, but none of the mags (at least the ones I looked at) had any areas that this one would qualify into. So, I think I may hang onto it for awhile... :)
I did a backstitch on the two sides by hand (yes I have a sewing machine now, no it's not ready to use, so I improvised for now). Since the line was so close to the edge, I wound up making the paper so it wasn't crisp and smooth anymore. Easy way to fix that...DISTRESS IT! :)
I roughed up all the sides, then took the chocolate piece and crumpled it up. I roughed up the sides of the kraft and then used some distressing ink I have on the edges of that and the star. I thought the spring moss star added a nice pop of color.
What do you think? Like it? Oh, this is also a deviation from my norm...this is a 4x4 square card. Think this is good enough to submit?
