Papertrey Ink Make It Monday #78/Moxie Fab Challenge

Hello everyone!  Hope you are having a fabulous week.  My mother and I took my little kiddo to the movies today for a fun "Girls Day!"  We went to see The Odd Life Of Timothy Green.  I have to say I loved that movie!!  My mom and daughter loved it too.  It was so sweet.  We did a little shopping afterwards and then went to an early dinner at Olive Garden, what a treat!!  When we got home I had a little time to myself in my craft room and whipped up a little card to play along with a challenge that had me "Itching to get Stitching' so to speak!!  Actually, once you read a little further, you'll understand what I mean. 

The card I am sharing today was inspired by Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday Challenge over at Nichole Heady's blog.  Once I saw the video, I was so excited to give this technique a try but just haven't found the time until today.  I struggled at first to find a stamp that I could stitch around and then I decided to use one of the chevron images from PTI's Background Basics and stitch directly on the stripe.  I dug out some of my embroidery floss from my punchneedle stash and tried to match them up as closely as I could.   Hope you like it!

This was a fun card to make! I like the dimension the stitching adds to this project.  I might have to try this again soon!

Thanks for stopping by!
