4/16 H2H Challenge

This week's H2H Challenge was to incorporate stitching.  You could add stitching by machine, hand, or even faux stitching to your cards.  I made my "stitches" using Pearl Bitty Opaques.  The card shape itself is actually the Tag button on pg. 45 of the CTMH AP Cricut cartridge cut at 4 1/2 inches.  I then scored it down the center & folded.  I covered the card using Florentine paper. The handle was sponged with Indian Corn Blue Ink, with Goldrush being used for the center stamp from the Wonderful You Acrylix stamp set.  EnJOY!


  1. What a pretty card! You must have a lot of patience to line up all those bitty sparkles! It's a very creative take on this week's challenge! Thanks for sharing with us at H2H!

  2. Thank you, Joelle. I'm having a lot of fun!

  3. Pretty idea to use the mini pearls for stitching! I just got this paper pack, but have not opened it yet!

    1. Thanks Romaine. I love the Florentine papers!
