Friday Challenge 58 ~ Pretty Thoughts



The Friday Challenge this week at Embellish-Online.com is to Stitch It Up! Our challenge hostess is Christine Ousley. We were to use stitching somewhere on a layout, card, or mini album, either by using a sewing machine or exploring the many possibilities of "faux" stitching.

My white Signo gel pen stold the show on this card....I love that pen for faux stitching, which I did on the scalloped circle...adding pearls for fun. I also dressed up the flower stamp from SU!'s Playful Petals set. I colored the flower with Copic Markers and cut it out. Designer papers and cardstock are SU!, as is the photo corner punch. I used Cuttlebug's Textile Embossing Folder to add some texture! Martha Stewart let me use her Doily Lace and Butterfly punches....nice lady! Thinking of you is by Paper Inspirations, the swirls by Sizzix and the scalloped circle from Archiver's.

We would love to have you play along....if you do, please use code FC58 when you upload to the gallery....or leave me a post here, I'd love to check it out!
