PTI Blog Hop March 2011 . . . Embroidery Floss


Time again for another PTI blog hop! For this month the challenge was to use DMC floss in our creation. I was thinking about that song, "Tie a Yellow Ribbon" and thought why not tie a pink ribbon and make bows for breast cancer awareness? And the DMC floss is just the right size to make ribbons for this PTI tree stamp. I used a kaleidacolor pad for the leaves, Fresh Greens, I think the multiple greens give it added interest. And I used DMC floss 605 and 603, braiding them together for the ribbon around the trunk and using the individual colors in the leaves. Thanks for looking and happy hopping!



In memory of my grandmother and my SIL.

Stamps: Papertrey Ink Through the Trees
Paper: white, green gingham, making memories (pink)
Ink: PTI chocolate, Fresh greens kaleidacolor pad, black
Other: DMC floss, PTI button

Oh Peggysue, I LOVE the bows on that tree! So cheery and springy! Wish there were pretty green leaves and spring was all tied up in a bow around here...instead there is snow on the ground and ice on the driveway...eeek enough is enough!

Breast cancer ribbons in the tree--what an amazingly good idea, Peggysue! I'm going to put this one in my "Inspiration" file to remember your genius idea!

Posh Paper said...

What a great idea. Several people I know who have successfully beaten breast cancer celebrate their 'all clear' this would be a great card to use to acknowledge it with them.
