Stitching (embroidery) and Texture and Recycling!

The theme at SSS Monday Challenge this week is to use stitching and I decided to make use of an old tablecloth that Had some stains that wouldn't go away. - A lot of stitching on this rose (-:



It also fits the new challenge at A blog named Hero which is : Texture 
The sentiment is from Hero arts, paper from October afternoon.

Have a great day, hugs, Karin

What a fabulous card you've created here! And I, a non-seamstress and junior-high-sewing-class-failure, have to really admire your stitching skills! I love the pattern you created and how the stitching looks like a little work of art. This was made by the hands of someone definitely skilled with a needle and thread and it was a real treat to see! Thank you for sharing your skills with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!

Oh my! This is gorgeous. What a great idea to recycle a well loved linen item. You found some beautiful paper to coordinate with that lovely stitched rose. Such a fabulous card! Thanks for sharing and inspiring! :)

Vilken bra ide Karin! Den broderade rosen är jättefin och passar perfekt i cirkeln på korten. Allt det gula är fint också. Tack så jättemycket för att du länkade till oss på Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
