Papertrey Blog Hop - Embroidery Floss

Finally, finished a card for a Papertrey Ink Blog Hop but  didn't get it posted in time for the hop.  That's ok...we went to dinner with friends and an awesome Chris Tomlin concert!  The night was warm and beautiful, perfect for an outdoor concert.

The challenge was use embroidery floss on our projects.  My card is pretty simple...I just made little French knots in my flower centers.  My first inclination was to use some of my stash of crocheted flowers I make in the car when we take long road trips but I thought maybe there would be alot of those entered.

The center panel is popped up on dimensionals. The area above and below the image panel were scored on the Scor-Pal and the border is a Martha Stewart punch.

Here's a closer look at the knots.  I added some shadows to my branch and some of the flowers with a T1 Copic marker.

Thanks for stopping by...maybe I'll be on time for the next one!!
