Challenge 21 - Flowers and Stitching

Hey everyone!!!  It's time for a new challenge and this week we want you to use handmade flowers and we would love to see some form of stitching on those flowers.  If the flowers you make are unable to be stitched we want to see stitching on your card!!!  Okay....if you are anything like me your going eek!!!  :)  Well....if you do a google search for handmade flower tutorials you will come up with a ton of them.  The flower that I wanted to make I couldn't because of my hubby but that is a different story!!  :P

First off....some guidelines:
Must use a Michelle Perkett Studio image.
Entries must be posted by 5:00PM PDT (Pacific Daylight Time) on Monday March 22nd
Must have some form of handmade flower.
Must have some form of stitching.
Challenge winner will get a $10 gift certificate to Michelle's store!! 

Now it's time for some inspiration from the awesome DT girls!!

First up we have this beautiful card created by Jean.
Don't you just love all of those flowers!?!

Next up we have a beautiful card from Gini.
and a side view of this gorgeous card............
 I just love those flowers and I'm really hoping that she tells us how to make them on her blog!!

Now we have this unique card from Nancy.
Isnt' this just the cutest!?!  Dang....look at all the stitching on those flowers!!!!

And then last you have me.
I used faux stitching on my flower because I wasn't thinking and glued all of my chipboard and everything together.  Yea...you can't stitch very good trying to go through chipboard!!!  I did make up for it though and stitched the stem of the flower.

We hope that the cards the DT has provided with be of some inspiration to you and we can't wait to see what you do with this challenge!!!

Have a good one!!
