Fun With Floss Challenge

Hello there! Here's one of the cards I created for the "Fun With Floss Challenge" over at Moxie Fab World! As the name implies, the challenge was to incorporate embroidery floss into a project. Click HERE to see all of the details and the sensational creations submitted by all of the participants!


I used my ultra handy new In Stitch'Z templates ("Silly Stitches") by Bazill Basics and designed a fun Springtime scene! I added french knots to the centers of the flowers. The sentiment was created in Microsoft Word. I think this is the most stitching I've ever done on a card (or anywhere for that matter!). I'm so happy with the results!!!

Here's a close-up:


And here's the inside:

Well, I have one more card that I want to try to finish up for this particular challenge. I'd better get to it as the deadline (March 1st) is literally right around the corner!!! Yikes!
