Love is All You Need

More hugs! Can't ever have enough of them.... this week our themed challenge at the Card Crafter's Circle is LOVE/VALENTINES!   And to boot, we have two sponsors!  I created two cards using the images from the two sponsors, so I will be splitting my post (not my heart) in two (posts)... this being the second half!

This post, shows the my creation using images from Robyn's Fetish Digital Designs... I had to pick these sweet heart flowers...

I printed the image along with a sentiment, and trimmed it to fit my card base (allowing for some layering as well).  Hmm... how to colour the image... with thread! So I sat and stitched them!   I added (hopefully) evenly spaced holes, an set to stitching the entire image, some using a simple running stitch, other sections use a stem stitch.

I then matted the image layer with red textured card, and fixed them with cream brads. This was then layered onto some sweet red and cream gingham check paper, and another layer of red textured card. Kinda reminds me of my Grandma's tablecloths.... and mine!

This card is also entered into these challenges:
A Gem of A Challenge: Gingham or Checks (8/2)
Kaboodle Doodles: Hearts (10/2)
Incy Wincy: Love Is In The Air (11/2)
Tammy's Scrapin Corner: Valentines (11/2)

And as I said in my last post, come on over and join in our LOVE/VALENTINE challenge at Card Crafter's Circle!  Thanks for peepin'!
