Stitched Flowers

 Today I decided to enter a couple of challenges
with my new Stitched Flower dies from Spellbinders.
I have been seeing these new stitch dies all over the net
and though beautiful didn't think it was something I
would do, boy was I wrong!
I purchased this die set purposely to stitch in the car
while we make our 5 1/2 hour trip to the lake house
but had to try them out to see if I even liked them.
Well, I have to say I liked them so much I have since bought 
a second set of stitching dies!

I used background paper from P13, one of my favorite companies next to
Mintay, both from Poland!
The layered background die is Pink Fresh Studio Blanket Stitched Oval,
I also added a layer of hearts since I saw The Flower Challenge theme
was to add hearts, they are Impression Obsession.
The sentiment is The Greetery Sentiment Suite Birthday.
The stitching on the dies was done with a variegated floss.

The challenges I created this card for are:
Simon Wednesday Challenge .... Happy Birthday
The Flower Challenge .... Add a Heart 
Die Cut Diva's .... Tic Tac Toe...Layers~Yellow~Flowers

What an adorable card. I love, love, LOVE it. Idid some stitching at Christmas and have not done it since. Think I need to pull out my dies (I have several - OF COURSE) and get out some floss. This looks just beautiful and I love your design. The background patterned paper is perfect.

Oh, wow, I haven't even seen these stitched dies before. I spend a lot of time under my rock. If my blog friends don't post it I probably won't know about it. However, I'm trying to catch up with my NBUS before I buy more. Ha! As if that's going to happen. There's always something new coming down the pike. This is absolutely enchantingly fabulous, Diane! I used to do a lot of embroidery. Loving those Pia papers, too. Still have quite a few new pads from fave companies that I haven't touched yet. Love your colors. Love everything about this FUN card!

I fell in LOVE with this card the moment I saw it, Diane. I think I have a similar die that I'd like to try this stitching technique with. it's awesome!! You're so creative. Thanks for sharing this lovely card with us all. It's super inspiring.
