Happy Good Friday! I am out of school for Easter Break and had some time to get crafty! I am playing along with this month's Papertrey Ink Blog Hop Challenge.
Here is the inspiration photo.
The first thing I thought of when I saw the inspiration photo was wow....stitching! Not sewing....stitching! When I think of sewing, I think of a machine. I can do that....sort of! When I think of stitching....I think needlepoint and cross stitching and probably some other things I am not aware exists. While I have done cross stitching, I must say it really is not my thing. However, I decided to embrace the challenge.
I started with the PTI doily die. I die cut two in PTI white and glued together. Then, I took my floss, a big needle, some scissors and sat down to stitch! I found it very therapeutic. I must say that what I stitched was by no means elaborate, I did just follow a few of the holes provided in the doily.
Next, I die cut and stamped the PTI Painted Petals. I popped up the doily as well as the flower using some foam tape. I mounted the doily to smokey shadow card stock that I lightly sponged with some Pigment white ink to mimic the look in the inspiration photo. I die cut and white embossed the sentiment from Keep It Simple: Encouragement using the Tag Sale Quilted die sentiment strip. I finished my card with a few clear sequins.
As always thanks so much for hopping by!
