This is my take on the challenge....

 I chose to do the faux stitching....which needs a little practice...]
I used the largest of the Fancy Spellbinders Die...and then the next largest...made my roses with the spellbinders rose die, which comes with the leaf die also.

This is a close up of the rose, which I made and then used a spong to put a little colour on the edges.
