PTI Blog Hop - Embroidery Floss!

***I have two posts today! If you're interested in my Festive Friday post, please scroll down!***



It's the 25th today, which means it's the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop! As soon as I saw this month's challenge, Embroidery Floss, I knew exactly what I wanted to do...


I'll keep it short since there are so many stops on your hop. All you really need to know is that I LOVE Cherries, and I LOVE vintage buttons...





I used the colour challenge over at Off the Wall Craftiness, which was to use yellow, red and green together. I LOVE this combo! I also used this week's sketch from Mojo Monday for inspiration! Happy Hopping, and thanks for looking!

The cherries are adorable, but what I really love is all the distressing you did on this card. That was what made it so great. The cherry stems in floss was such a good idea.
