BC293: All Stitched Up




I'm hoping my mojo has come back, I've been productive in creating this week and can't wait to share all that I've done.  Keep your eye out on Monday for a mega post filled with LOTS of cards.

Today over at Blogger's Challenge our theme is "All Stitched Up".  This gave me a great opportunity to dust off my little Janome and do some sewing.  At first my stitching was not straight but I decided to improvise and love how it turned out on my card.

I don't think I had ever inked up my Botanical Blooms set from Stampin' Up! and thought that this set would be great for what I had in mind.  At first I was thinking a Valentine's card, but went in the direction of love/anniversary instead.


I stamped my flower image twice and popped it up with dimensionals.  I added some pearls for the flower center to give it some elegance.

This is for a few challenges this week:






Hope you will join us for Blogger's Challenge this week, can't wait to see what you stitch up.
