Itching to be stitching Mashup Challenge

So, here's the "Mashup!" challenge:
1. Create a project with "Stitching or Faux Stitching".
2. Or Create a project for "Back To School or a Teacher Gift".
3. Or "Mash it Up!" and create a "Back To School Project with Stitching"!

Well I guess you could say a part of this mashup is my passion, the stitching part. I love to do embroidered cards, so that's what I decided to do this week. I used silk threads and gold beads. Then punched and mounted the image and added the greeting.
Thanks for looking.


  1. The image you created with silk threads is stunning, your card is so beautiful.

  2. Wow Cindy, that looks great! I would never have the patience to do anything like that. The image is truly stunning, and I love the touch of beads!

  3. Oh my, Cindy this is fabulous, I've seen this style of card front before and I'm just amazed at the intricate detail you can achieve with this. Your card is stunning. You certainly nailed the stitching part of the challenge this week!

  4. Your card is beautiful. I have started one or two of these cards but yet to finish them. I like the extra effect of the added beads. Truly inspirational. I would like to thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and for leaving me positive feedback. It made my day

    Happy crafting and hugs


  5. Cindy, this card is lovely. As usual I just wonder how you do that...that beautiful stitching.
