If you take a look around, you can find inspiration in nearly anything!  This month we challenge you to look at embroidered patterns in a whole new light!  Look through your clothes, Pinterest, home decor catalogs or even the inspiration I have provided above and find an embroidered pattern that speaks to you.  Using the colors and design of the embroidery, build your own stamped version using your favorite floral stamps or other images.  No stitching required!  We just know that there will be some beautiful projects that stem from this!  Enjoy!

  Schedule-of-Events

EDITED TO ADD RANDOMLY SELECTED WINNERS:

Random-numbers

Kelly-Griglione

Kelly Griglione created this amazing card featuring paper poppies.  I love the subte ikat pattern (Irresistibly Ikat) in the background and the way the embroidery floss stems are hanging loose beneath the sentiment strip.  So clever!

Angie-Person

Angie Person used the Headline Alphabet to create this gorgeous letter sampler.  She added a few accents with the Stitched Sentiments set to carry through her theme.  The color gradients in this are just fabulous!  

Kay-Demonbren

Kay Demonbren made this sunshine-filled card using Doodlie-do and a few trendy die-cuts.  The color combination is just so fresh and fun!  The random dots stamped on the backgroundgive the project so much movement and interest!

Congrats to all three winners!  Please send a note to customer service and provide them with the email address you would like your gift certificate to.  Thank you to everyone who played along!  It certainly created an InLinkz list full of gorgeous colors and eye candy!  Have a great weekend!
