CYP #140 - Stitching

It is with sadness that I am posting my last card as an active member of Craft Your Passion Challenges.  Life seems to be getting in my way lately, keeping me from creating as often as I like.  But, life goes on... I'll be back (Jenn has promised I can come back) and maybe guest design there or something like that.  But for now, after 70+ challenges, this will be my last inspiration card for them.

I got to pick our theme this week and I picked "Stitching"... This can be real or faux and on any kind of project.  I went very clean and simple, not something I am ultimately very comfortable with, but really enjoy! I love how this one came out - just "simply elegant" and eye-catching.

I used a Bazil stitching template to punch the flower before stitching it with black thread.  A simple ribbon and small sentiment finished it off.

I'd love to see your take on stitching for this challenge.

I'll be entering this project in the following challenges:

Make it Monday - Linky party
Stamps & Fun - No Christmas

This is really a beautiful card. Love the black stitching on the white background. Gorgeous ribbon, too. I will miss you on the CYP team. You have been such an inspiration. I'll still get my Jodi-fix as I am a follower but it's been a pleasure working with you. I look forward to your visits in the future.
