Say it With Stitching....



It's time for another fun challenge at AnnaBelle Stamps! Fun,fun challenge! 


I tried to create a quilt block! My image is from fanciful flowers! After I stamped it I pierced very carefully around the flowers and ran my pink marker over it to create faux stitching. I then ran it through my big shot and embossed it. Well I have to tell you the embossing smashed out my piercing )0=  Soooo I pierced around the edge of the card and zig zagged my stitching! Either way I like how it turned out... nothing like I had planned when I started the card! Be sure and check out what the rest of the DT has come up with! You can find their links on my sidebar! 

About our challenges: - We post our challenges every Friday at 12:00pm AEST (AEDT during Daylight Savings). - Each challenge runs for a week, and will close on the Friday 10.00am so that we can announce and showcase our weekly winners prior to the next challenge. - Each weeks winner will receive our special blinkie to display on their blog and a $10.00 Gift Voucher to spend in store at AnnaBelle Stamps (or something equivalent). How To Play Along : - Copy and save our challenge banner and include it and a link back to the ABS blog in your post if you have a blog. - Please link directly to your entry not just to your blog or gallery. - Please don't link to postings made prior to the date of our current challenge. All projects submitted must be new. - A maximum of 7 challenges may be combined including this one. - You may enter any of our challenges several times as long as each submission is with a new creation. - We would love you to use AnnaBelle Stamps and embellishments, but you can play along without using them, it’s all about sharing ideas :) 
Have a great evening and I can't wait to see what you come up with!
