Moxie Fab Challenge: Fun With Floss

When I saw this challenge, I just knew I wanted to play along. And luckily I made some time this weekend to get inky!

Cath over at Moxie Fab World, challenged us to have fun with floss, and oh how much fun could be had...but alas, I only had blue floss on hand (must remedy that this week). So I pulled out the SU! Nursery Necessities stamp set, and decided to do a baby boy card. This is what I came up with.

I drew in some waves and came in with a backstitch using blue floss. Tip: I pre-pierce the holes with my needle and then come back in and stitch. Amongst those waves I nestled a little sail boat. I finished it off with a bow and a tag. Super simple card, but it sure does look like it took much more effort than it did! Love it when it turns out that way. ;o) Here's a close up of those little waves.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope your week is off to a good start!
