Double D Challenge - Stitches

Hello Friends!
It's time once again for a new challenge at the Double D Challenge Blog and, it's another fun theme chosen by Diane ... also check out the amazing mood board she has designed to inspire you!
 Our theme is: 
Stitches...any kind
Here's the mood board Diane has created . . .

Here's what I've created to inspire you today ...

Close up of stitched dies . . .

My 'stitched' element is the Memory Box 'Wrapped Stitched Circle' die set.
And the remainder of my design comes from the Pink & Blue Watercolored paper pack that I purchased a few months back but hadn't taken the time to play with yet.  This paper pack has various patterns that all coordinate with each other ... a group on pinks and a group in blues.

Diane has this fabulous prize offered to one lucky winner.
But, you have to play to win!!

 Be sure to pop over to our Double D Challenge Blog and check out what the design team ladies have created ... they are amazingly talented and I'm sure you'll find more wonderful inspiration!

Hope to see you there!

As always . . .
