Butterfly Stitching & Sprinkle

Kept it simple today~

(stamp:Papertrey Ink Winter Woods sentiment/The Sweet Life roses  die:Sweet 'n Sassy New Beginnings    other:We R Memory Keepers Sew Easy Tool, Paper Piercer,Pretty Pink Posh Clear Droplets)

Be impressed...I did a 'lil handstitching. :)

I started out with a sew easy tool for straight lines, then paper pierced the holes and handstitched with embroidery thread.

I went with blues and yellow

 a butterfly inspiration...

& a sprinkling of clear droplets~

Glad I could fit in some creative "me" time today~

thanks for stopping by!
