Stitched flowers in pineapple colours :)
"A stitch in time, saves nine!! " is a pretty famous proverb that almost all of us have heard atleast once in our lifetime.. LOL !! :))
Well, for now, i am just referring to the "stitch" word in this proverb ;-)
It is two "first"s this time -> Using stitching (hand - stitching) for the first time in my card and participating for the first time in the challenge - BGC #20 Sew Happy Stitching Challenge hosted by Beyond Grey Challenges! This challenge has been the inspiration for the creation of this card!
So here's my completely handmade card that i am linking up for the above Challenge!
I have hand cut the flowers and have coloured them with rather un-usual colour i.e, yellow amidst a green background.I have also added quilled triangles in green and yellow to the flower centers and to the background.
I have hand-stitched using the "running stitch" with a brown embroidery thread in all the below places in my card:
- All the flower borders
- Swirls in the background
A closer view of the flower:
It is one small way of creating a bright card ( LOL ;) ) in this "oh-so-gloomy" weather.
And since I have overall used the "pineapple colours" and have adorned my card with "Quilled Triangles", i am linking this card for "first" time to the challenge Challenge #58 - Pineapples hosted by The Lollipop Ladies. This challenge has been equally an inspiration for the card colours and creation :))
