FSS Christmas Peony - Stamp with Fun Sketch Challenge

So, you say you've never heard of a Christmas Peony!!! Well, I had these GOEGEOUS Red Peonies from Fred She Said, printed out and thought how great they would look with this sketch from Stamp with Fun Sketech Challenge. I had to tweek it slightly.
I was almost tempted to put Happy Birthday on it, but I have this very pretty Merry Christmas Digi, also from Fred She Said, and I thought it looked very elegant. The card is very similar to the Christmas Rose card I posted yesterday, but has it's own beauty.

The background of the card is DP from the Mistletoe PAper Pack from Close to my Heart, but I used a NEW Cuttlebug embossing folder on it. I think you're going to see many cards of mine with this embossed background.

I finished it off with some red Grosgrain Ribbon and white pearls that I colored red with my Copic Markers and  Hand Stitching with Red Embroidery Floss.

Wow, your cards are just beautiful. Love the flowers you are using on christmas cards. I just love your stitching you do. I was wondering if you would share some info on how you do that. Do you have a pattern you use. I would love to learn how to do this.
