Playing in Paradise #54 - stitching challenge

Supplies: paper & chipboard from Fancy Pants;
ribbon from May Arts;
brad & letter stickers from Basic Grey

Stickers were used as a template for the stitching - I laid out the stickers,
pierced through them, and then peeled them off before stitching with 3 strands
of embroidery floss

Supplies: paper from Basic Grey "Oxford;"
sentiment from Digital Princess;
Peeled Paint & Vintage Photo Distress ink;
peacock feather

Stitching done along the paper's pattern
Wow, this post will be short! My hard drive is having the disc drawer replaced, and I'm using the kids' Netbook...with Internet Explorer, its tiny keyboard, track pad, and none of my links. I thought pre-loading my pictures would be enough & could go from, no. Ugh.
These cards are for Scrapbooker's Paradise PIP Challenge #54, which is to use stitching, real or faux, on your creations. You have until tomorrow at noon to play!
I can't wait to have my computer back - although something tells me, without blurfing & Facebook I just might get an awful lot done!

And here I was thinking you had this awesome handwriting and wrote out that "Welcome"! LOL!
LOVE that peacock feather and the subtle stitching on the second card.
