Papertrey April Blog Hop Challenge

Hiya! I'm back today with a card I made a few days ago for this months Papertrey Blog Hop! This month the theme is embroidery, I loved the images on the sample but I did a quick Pinterest search and found this lovely skirt image and decided to use that as inspiration.
I used vellum and white embossed a lace border stamp across the bottom, then masked it off and stamped & embossed most of the flowers from the Doodlie Do set. I really liked how the vellum warped in the heat as it looked more like fabric so I just stitched it to the card base and added one of two dabs of glue so it wasn't flapping about. I embossed the sentiment, cut it into strips and I was done! I used Chupa's Sketchbook Saturday sketch and also this weeks Papertake challenge of White +1, mine is the adventurous cream! ;-) I hope you like it, thanks for looking!



Supplies;
Stamps - Papertrey 'Doodlie Do' & Dovecraft 'Tea Party borders'
Sentiment - Elzybells
Other - vellum & white embossing powder

This is SO pretty and reminds me of an all white embroidered tablecloth my grandmother used to have. It is so delicate looking and makes a perfect wedding card. I may have to CASE this...thank you for the inspiration! :0)
