March Papertrey Blog Hop

Today is the day for this month's Papertrey blog hop and I was able to make a card and participate for the first time. I usually don't see the details of the blog hop until it's too late to participate but not this month. The challenge this month is to use embroidery floss in a fun and inventive way on your project.  This could include stitching, wrapping it around and tying it like ribbon, braiding, accenting tags, embroidered patterns or anything else you can dream up!  

Well, I don't know if my use is all that inventive but I really like how my card turned out.

I stamped some spools and wrapped the embroidery floss around the spool. I also used it to thread my buttons. All of the images are from the PTI Quilters Sampler set

Thanks for stopping. I hope you're having a great week. Happy Stamping!
