The sketch for the blog hop challenge is

Stitch of Love.png

The card size is optional.

Here is the card I made with the Knickerbocker Glory stamp set.

I have created my own backing paper by altering the stamp colours in Serif page plus 7.  I then covered the whole sheet with pink, brown and yellow knicker bockers!  The stitches have been made using alternate yellow, pink and brown cross stitch thread.

I have wrapped the same colour cross stitch thread around the topper and tied a bow.  The icecream has been coloured in pro markers, then cut out and attached with foam pads to make it stand out.The sentiment has been printed out, then cut out with an Nellie Snellen die, inked and liquid pearled

The birthday sentiment has been punched out then attatched to another Nellie Snellen die cut and a cherry charm has been added.

Here is a close up of the backing paper

I have also used the backing paper for inside the card.


I hope you like it.

Have a great hop :o)
