Anything Goes at Here Come The Boys

Well I'm afraid I'm a little late with this post... lots going on and I just didn't get time to post yesterday which is when the latest challenge at Here Come The Boys started.  It's an Anything Goes challenge, and it runs until 4th January so it's easy peasy AND you have plenty of time to enter - don't forget your project has to be for a man or boy though :-) There's Xmas Candy too.... so don't forget to pop on over and check it all out!
I had any amount of ideas other than a card, but in the end it's a card I've got to show you.
The image is one I've had for yonks, it's "Peas On Earth" from Whimsie Doodles, and (as a lover of all things cryptic) I loved the play on words... my hubby on the other hand didn't "get" it - so I added the & Goodwill to All Men sentiment to help him out; as he still looked unconvinced I added the sentiment to the inside hinting - very broadly, I feel - that it's "Peas" on "Earth" - hopefully now EVERYONE will "get it" :-)  I coloured with Copics, using Prismacolor pencils to add shading to the very tiny details.
The papers are from Kaisercraft, Christmas Carnival, and the textured cardstock is Bazill. It's all layered up with foam dots.
The zig zag border on the inside is cut with Nestabilities Classic borders (Ric Rac?).  There's no embellies on this card at all, not a one!  I had a snowflake on one corner of the image, but it refused to stay and was a bit superfluous anyway :-)
Don't forget to check out the rest of my teamies, they've really gone all out and have some very inspiring work to show.  You've got plenty of time to enter the challenge, I do hope you do and I'll come and visit ;-) and there's that Candy too, mmmmm.
I've listed the challenges I'm entering this time around, it's the quickest way and with my kitchen renovation eating into both my crafting and Christmas shopping time, "quick" = "good"

Hi Donna! Love the card you made!! Unfortunately I don't see any "stitching" nor is there a link to the Craft Your Passion "Stitching" Challenge. I'm thinking you entered your card on the wrong challenge??
Please let me know if I am not seeing things right!
