Lil Lolita Challenge #15 - In Stitches

Good Morning & Afternoon depending on where you may be reading this from! I really appreciated the break last week even though - wow I was completely inspired by all the button cards we had!!! Be sure to stop by the LLB Blog to check out our winner & top 5 - you sure didn't make it easy to choose. For our challenge this week, we are to use stitching. Now, I LOVE the look of REAL stitching on cards, but have NOT worked up the nerve to pull out the big old clunky sewing machine try it yet, but I did see a cute little one that would be just perfect to use on card and hinted at it to my hubby a couple weeks ago....maybe one day, right?! So, for my card, I used FAUX stitching. ALMOST as cute as real....I absolutely adore the original Willow - she is just super cute so I had to give her some love this week. My color combo comes from this week's All That Scraps challenge -pumpkin, burgandy, artichoke - it was so unique I just had to try it out. I love it because it screams fall to me. I didn't have any big centers for my flowers so I created it by using one large pear and several tiny ones. LOVED how it turned out!! Thanks for stopping by and be sure to leave the rest of the Lil Lolita's some love as well!!!
