March Papertrey Blog Hop

Hello everyone, I'm here again to join in on the PTI blog hop. It's been a long time since I played along and I happened to have a card already made. The challenge was to use embroidery floss in some way on our project. I had all my elements mostly done, so I decided to add some Spring Moss stitches around the circle frame. 


To make sure all my stitches were nice and even, I punched some holes with a piercing tool using one of those plastic canvas circles. Super simple and I didn't have to worry about even stitches.

This is an unusual color combination for me, but I hardly ever use this bright aqua 'Hawaiian Shores' so I challenged myself to use it. I'm pretty pleased with the way it turned out too, so I have to tell myself not to be afraid to use different colors in the future.

Thanks for hopping by!

  16. One week later and I'm still hopping about. Since the Green Boutique paper came out, I have been in love with this color combination. You did a wonderful job using it, especially with your stamped background. The stitched frame adds a sweet surprise element to your design.
