PTI March Blog Hop

I was inspired by the beautiful inspiration photos on this month's PTI blog hop to make this card. I was first taught embroidery by a nun at a Girls School I attended. I made several projects which are now treasured possessions at my Mum's house. In recent years I have not done much until someone at work taught me some new stitches. Here is my card with the dress embroidered with gold and silver threads. I first tried this on vellum and had a lot of trouble with it. So I ended up doing it on card instead. I'm also adding this card to PTI Make it Monday - Ink blending over heat embossing. Thanks for dropping by!!

  4. Beautiful! Great stamp choice and the stitches and sequins are perfect! What a beautiful memory to be taught by the nuns. I had nuns as teachers as well but they never taught us stitching. Happy Easter, Cecilia!
