Papertrey March Blog Hop Challenge


The challenge this month is all about using embroidery floss:
For the March Blog Hop we are challenging you to use embroidery floss in a fun and inventive way on your project.  This could include stitching, wrapping it around and tying it like ribbon, braiding, accenting tags, embroidered patterns or anything else you can dream up! We look forward to seeing your creations!
I didn't think I would be able to participate in the Blog Hop this month, what with getting sick, but then I remembered that a birthday card I made a couple of weeks ago fit the challenge - I used embroidery floss on it.  I am the first to admit that it was not so creative or inventive - I used it to sew a button to a die cut felt flower.  But it means I can participate in the Blog Hop, so here it is:


Thanks for looking!  Now go check out the rest of the Blog Hop participants on the list over at Nichole's blog.  Have a great Blog Hop day!
