Flowers and Stitching



Today is another challenge from Michelle Perkett Studios! This week we are challenging you to stitch on your card and add hand-made flowers. I used the Mary, Mary image from Michelle, and colored her with copics, and then cut her out using my nestabilities. I stitched my bottom layers together, using a dark purple rayon thread. For my flowers, I gathered Hannah Silk ribbon into rosettes, and added Swarovski crystals for the center. I hope you will play along with us this week - these are two of my favorite techniques to use! Be sure to upload your card to Michelle's Inspiration and Challenge Blog by Mar. 22, 5:00 PST.
