Stitch It!! Just Inklined Blog Hop

Are you ready for another fantastic Just Inklined Blog Hop? ! ?  If you arrived here from Peri's blog you are on the right track, if not you might want to start at Debbie's Blog which is the beginning so you won't miss a single creation. along the way.  Debbie is the hostess this month and her choice of theme is to Stitch on your card, either real stitching or faux is fine.

I used the Poinsettia Wreath image for my card.  I love to color poinsettia's and this wreath was awesome to color, what do you think?


I actually did a lot of stitching on this card.  The base beige snowflake layer has a double row of gold metallic stitching, the scalloped circle was stitched in a circle just inside the scallops, I actually kept it pretty straight, LOL.  I then used free motion stitching in scalloped designs around the corners and border of hte red plaid layer.
A red velvet ribbon with gold bell, and NOEL cut from the red plaid dp in the upper left corner and my stitched card is complete.

The next stop along your Hop is the super talented Joyce, who I know has a wonderful project for you to see.

Thank you for stopping by and be sure to stop by the Just Inklined Blog on your way to the store where you can purchase any of the wonderful images you on your hop!!!

Have a great day,

Cathy

This card just says "Christmas". I love the way you colored those little berries. They look real. The gold thread was an awesome choice. That classic red velvet ribbon with the gold embellishment just topped it off!
