You Have Me In Stitches

365 Cards Day 129

My 2nd attempt at this challenge is this card.
I didn't read the 'rules' correctly and my first card only had a couple of little stitched flourishes in the corners....bad girl!!
I have to do a stitched image!
So I routed out a brass template and pierced around the flower and inside the spiral in the middle for the flower onto a large emb. Nestie 'Pinking Circle'. The embossing or texture of the card hasn't scanned.
The paper used was Basic Grey 'Offbeat'
I did a further piercing of a Bazzill In Stitch'z for a stem on top of the paper.
This was finished off with a little 'sun' tag and some Doodlebug rub-on letters along the stem to say 'flower'
A little piece of pinked bazzill sun is peaking out of the top corner lol!!

Well the card was completed through lots of tears as I watched the memorial service for dear Michael Jackson....may his soul rest in peace, God Bless him.
