Well, this is the newest and my first time stitching on a card, I'm fairly happy with how it turned out, at least I learned a little about it (like how it kills your fingers and is actually PRETTY hard to do).  Comments appreciated!

Stitching is easier if you use a paper piercer -- it's a super sharp tool that makes little holes, and then you run the thread through.  Without that, it is very hard on your hands.

Edited to add: That card is awesome.  I love the way you can see the boy's jaw under his skin, and the colors are so coordinated.  Great job!

Thanks!  Well I started to just poke holes with an exacto knife but then I realized that, well that's a whole lot of holes!  But in retrospect, it took me longer this way anyway, and the idea I had would have worked out better with said knife so I'm gonna try to make one tonight using it.
