In Stitches...

A stitch in time would have confused Einstein -UnknownThis week's Woodware USA Challenge is Faux Stitching. I love this technique, but forget to pull out my Mat Stack! I'm glad this was the challenge...I may leave my Paper Piercer out on the desk for awhile!!

I had fun playing with the little flowers included in the Mixed Greetings set. I had a piece of leftover Kraft CS sitting on my table and it made a smaller than normal card, so the small scale flowers were perfect! My card base measures 3" x 4.25". I grabbed the color from a Pretty pair of Earrings at the Lemon Kissed Etsy shop (This week's Shop on Etsy Inspired Challenge.) Once I knew the color I wanted to use I saw my new Wistful Ribbon I won from Pixie Petals (through Etsy Inspired!! :D)

Stamps: Mixed Greetings (Woodware USA)
Paper: Kraft, White, Melon Berry (PTI)
Ink: Pretty in Pink, Cranberry Crisp, Chocolate Chip (SU,) Melon Berry (PTI)
