Needle & Thread for the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge #550

Taking a break from Sale-A-Bration products and using the Needle & Thread bundle from the Occasions catalog for today's Create with Connie & Mary Challenge.

Here is the sketch for this week's challenge.

I chose the Needle & Thread bundle because I wanted a set that had sentiments as well as images.  I also wanted a set that  had coordinating framelits.  The added bonus of this bundle is that it also has the Needlepoint Nook DSP. I started by choosing the pattern of DSP I wanted to work with and then built the card around the paper.   The 2 strips of paper underneath the oval is also DSP and in fact is on the back of the paper I chose.  I thought the stitched stripes looked like ribbon which fit the sketch perfectly.

One of my favorite framelits in the Needlepoint Elements Framelits is the one I used to create the design on the Whisper White card stock.  It is a beautiful stitched design and I ran it multiple times to create the stitched background.  Simple and yet adds a lot of interest.   I will be using this idea again soon.

Now it is time for you to check out what the other members of the Create with Connie & Mary Design team created.  Thank you for stopping by!
