CASology Stitch challenge

The moment I saw the cue word for the CASology challenge this week, I knew I wanted to play.  When you say "stitch" to me, I think of stitching quilts!

CASology Stitch

supplies: white and Audrey Blue cardstock, Lil Inker Circles and Diamonds Stitched Pattern cover plate which was made to go along with their Diamonds stamp set, vintage photo distress ink, Hero Arts Orange Soda and Butter Bar inks, Simon Audrey Blue ink, sentiment from Paper Smooches Needle Little Love, Memory Box Pinpoint Rectangle dies

This would be a one-layer card, except for the frame I added around the stamped area.  I've been enjoying mixing an aqua with fall colors lately, so I continued for today's card, too.  One of the diamond options in the stamp set is a woodgrain, which is so unique, and seems to be a good choice with these fall colors.  Playing with this cover plate and matching stamps is almost as fun (and a WHOLE lot faster) as stitching a quilt!


Thanks for coming by today!  Be sure to visit the CASology blog - I'm looking forward to seeing all the other entries!
