Embellish Birthdays Color Challenge

Wow here's day two with very little stamping. I think the amount of sewing on this card makes up for the lack of stamping. Here's the image for the challenge:
And here's my card (this card is a weird size it's 6x4... I really wanted an elongated look):
Now do you see the brown with the stitching? I used my sewing machine to make that grid. Here it is before I put the blue piece over it with the die cut:
 Stamps: Big & Bold (Papertrey Ink)
Ink: Vintage Sepia (VersaFine)
Ribbon: Snow White (Papertrey Ink)
Cardstock: Not Quite Navy, Chocolate Chip (Stampin' Up); New Leaf (Papertrey Ink)
Pattern Paper: Raspberry Fizz Bitty Boxes (Papertrey Ink)
White Pen: Uni-Ball White Gel Pen
Buttons: New Leaf (Papertrey Ink)
Thread: White (Coats and Clark)

----------
Only a few more days left in this EBTKS challenge!

That stitching looks so fun - a lot of work, but a really cool effect to have the cut out showing the stitching like that. And the buttons on their coordinating panel is a really neat idea too.
