Welcome to the PTI October Blog Hop!
This month our challenge was to create a card using the following photo as our inspiration.
Isn't that a beautiful photo!? There were so many directions I thought about taking my card but besides the polka dots, the one thing that really stood out to me were the leaves!! Can you see them very well? The green leaf on the large pumpkin has blue thread stitched around it! I LOVED that detail. I took inspiration from her leaf and created a very easy accent for my card.
It would look better if I would have used a blanket stitch like she did, but hey! I was in a time crunch and didn't have time to learn how to do it! Although I did save a bookmark with a tutorial on how to make a blanket stitch. That'll be for next time! I also used a sewing machine to stitch the veins onto the leaf.
Here's a closeup of my leaf embellishment. I tried to use colors that were close to what the colors were in the inspiration photo for my leaf.
