Just Magnolia - In Stitches - Challenge 4

The new challenge blog Just Magnolia is already hosting their 4th challenge! This week the challenge is "In Stitches". Not only must your creation feature a Magnolia image but you must also include stitching of some kind whether it is faux stitching....hand stitching....or machine stitching. I chose to dust off my sewing machine and turn it on to do a little zig zagging around my 3 printed floral panels and the circle behind Tilda. I love stitching on cards and I really should turn on my sewing machine more often to stitch on my cards.

Supplies Used:
Image: Magnolia / Tilda
Cardstock" Bazzill
Printed Paper: DCWV
Spellbinders Nestabilities
Offray Ribbon
Prima flowers with brads for centers
Vine / flourishes by BossKut
Techniques: Image colored with Prismacolor colored pencils and blended with Gamsol.
Completed card size: 5 1/2" x 5 1/2"

I hope you can find some time to check out the amazing creations this week over at Just Magnolia....lots of talent over there!
