Papertrey Blog Hop - Embroidery Thread - put your party hat on!

Here is PTI's challenge:
For the March Blog Hop we are challenging you to use embroidery floss in a fun and inventive way on
your project.  This could include stitching, wrapping it around and tying it like ribbon, braiding, accenting tags, embroidered patterns or anything else you can dream up!
 I decided to use my Hero Arts Friendly Flags set to make a party hat complete with a pom pom and chin strap.
I used PTI's big sentiment set and did a background of the retro set.  One of my faves!  I popped it up with a pop dot and glued the pom pom with Glossy Accents - that stuff holds up to everything!  I think I might use Stickles to emphasize the dot on the 'i' but haven't yet ...

Make sure to take a look at all of my submissions for this blog hop - I went a little embroidery thread crazy! :)

Supplies:
Paper: Staples 110lb white
Ink: Fresh inks steel blue and pear
Stamps: PTI's Background Basics: Retro, Think Big Sentiments #1, Hero Arts Friendly Flags
Misc: Embroidery floss, Glossy Accents, pom pom, foam dots
