Papertrey March Blog Hop Challenge

I am early....does the early bird get the worm...I hope so.....as Papertrey Ink is having a blog hop starting at 10 est.....I just have a bizillion things to do today, so did my card early this AM........
The challenge:   use embroidery floss in a fun and inventive way ~ I stitched my flower with a tone of purple embroidery floss...I show the outline I used below....kind of a spiral.....

then I stamped over it with Memento Grape Jelly ink using the Bitty Backgrounds Blocks....the gingham stamp...oh how I love this stamp...and thing is I almost didn't purchase the set, thinking "I have background stamps I can use"....oh ~ I am soooooo very glad I did...I love this set and use it all the time...I used it for my backgound on my SU Pretty In Pink cs...made a somewhat patchwork effect by overstamping...did the same on the little button die cut...love how it turned out...I used Button Boutique for my sentiment, Simply Chartreuse Twill Ribbon for the flower stem and leaf......and my darling little dress form die...all from Papertrey......thats it...come back and visit again......
