A Dirty Stitch in Time

If you're looking for the CAS Monday card just click here or scroll down.  I wanted to try to get in (just under the wire) the Ribbon Carousel's "A Stitch in Time" challenge to use stitching on your card.  The challenge is hosted by Debbie Carriere!  You probably recognize this fab stamper from the Gallery Idol competition.

Here's my take on the challenge.  I need a gift card holder for a wedding shower so decided something blue was just the ticket.

A bit vintage, a bit modern,  a touch of ribbon. a sweet Petaloo flower and alot of stitching!

I got brave and entered this in a couple of the Dirty Girls challenges on SCS as well.  Have you gotten dirty yet?

Pin It!

What a pretty colour combo and the stitching looks so nice. The ribbon and doily fit in perfectly alongwith the flower. Very pretty!
