In Stitches Challenge #10

I decided to give Jenny's current In Stitches challenge being sponsored by DeNami Designs, one of my favorite stamp companies, a go!  I used a recently purchased DeNami stamp, Large Flower Spray, for my card along with some SU! cardstock I had out to make another card.  I also used some patterned paper from the DCWV mat stack Garden Whimsy.  The colors are pretty fun and bright.  I stamped the image using SU!'s Certain Celery image on white cardstock and then the flower portion on Cameo Coral cardstock with Cameo Coral ink.   I pierced the stems and leaves of the first image and then stitched them using a light green DMC floss.  The Cameo Coral flowers were cut out and popped up on the card.  Did some matting using the patterned paper and additional cardstock. 

Thanks for taking a peek and have a great day!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; SU! Cameo Coral & Certain Celery; Ink:  SU!
