April 2014 PTI blog hop

This month the challenge for the PTI hop is to use embroidery as your inspiration.
Here's what I've come up with: 
I broke into the Smile set- inked the leaves twice & cut it with a Spellbinder die to mimic the look of the hoop.
I tried doing it on smokey shadow first- but I don't have any embossing powder (in these colors) that shows well on dark cardstock. May need to remedy that at some point! ;)
Versamark & clear embossing for the centers.
Core'dinations paper (from the MME stack) & May Arts kraft Baker's twine. *love*
A little chai distressing around the edges.
Here's the image that inspired me:
Embroidery Hoop Poppies-  I don't do embroidery, but if i did, i'd want it to look like this.
Happy Hopping!
Here's Hadley with her sweet kitten Annie Crookshanks McGonagall on Easter :)
