Hugs and Happy Thoughts

I had to go out of town for work last week, and when I do I always take a little something to work on.  This time, before I left I stamped some of the leaves from my all time favorite Altenew stamp set, Beautiful Day on a card panel, and brought along my stitching supplies.

I stamped just the outline images and the highlights (using Evergreen and Forest Glades ink).  The outline images aren't a full outline, there's some variation, and I thought they would be perfect for stitching.  Note this is the same leaf image that is repeated throughout, but the stitching is a little different from image to image, which makes it that much more unique and special.

I used two strands of DMC floss for this.

When I got home, I trimmed the panel down, added a sentiment (also from the Beautiful Day set), rounded the corner for a bit of extra interest, and mounted it to my card base with foam tape.

Thanks so much for stopping by, hope your week is going well!
