embellish magazine~challenge~

Another GREAT challenge at Embellish Magazine this time. As soon as I saw the colors, Iknew I had to participate :). I *love* these colors. And I love to stitch on my cards. What's not to love about kraft, aqua and light pink?! I did end up thinking more than I expected about what I wanted to do though.

Here is what I made. I love to do machine stitching on my cards, but I thought I would try out some hand stitching instead this time. I have so many colors of embroidery floss it's not hard to find the color I want :) I didn't want the butterflies to be too plain, so I stamped them with a small damask image in aqua mist ink. I liked it a little better than just the versamark. It's a little less subtle. The circle actually has text stamped on it in light sand color--not very noticeable, but it adds just a little more interest, especially in person. I had lots of fun making this card.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope your week is going well!!
