Tea Party!

Giovana was our hostess for this party, and the theme was stitches and ribbon. Yep, I can definitely do that!

This is a very quick card - I love this patterned paper (Making Memories), and just accented the design with this wonderful sentiment from Friends Trio. I would have loved to do some real stitching on it, but my sewing machine is buried so I settled for the faux variety with a paper piercer and a marker. Still a nice effect, though! I distressed all the edges and then tied on some cute ribbon (Prima) as the final touch.

Hop over to Susan, Dina, Giovana & Donelda to see what loveliness they have to share today!

Beautiful Trish!!! The faux stitch looks really real.

Have a great day.

A nice way to "show off" a stamped quote, and I second Giovana's faux stitching observation. It does look real!
