Sometimes a challenge theme immediately inspires me, but to be honest, that didn't happen when I saw the PTI Blog Hop photos! I used to do cross stitch, but never embroidery. I have made French Knots so decided to use them with colors from the inspiration. Well, it turns out making French Knots is not like riding a bike! I did finally get 9 French Knots made after 2 hours & decided to change my design to 3 flowers instead of 7--haha! Actually, I like the final card better anyway & since I used the sketch at Share Joy I'll enter there, too.
The floss I used was pink for the red flowers & light blue for the blue ones, even though it looks white. Fun to use some of my felt again which I glued to a panel of PTI Soft Stone. The flowers are Friendly Flowers & the leaves are Lovely Leaves. The sentiment from Friendly Flowers was stamped on a scrap of Soft Stone in Versafine Smokey Gray. I cut the white stitched frame twice to make it a little thicker & love how it looks with the Soft Stone. I already have a friend in mind to mail this to. I'm also entering at Dies R Us & Word Art Wednesday. Thanks for taking time to stop by--enjoy the hop!
