Papertrey Blog Hop - Embroidery Thread - French knots



The 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 try French knots with the embroidery thread. I used PTI's Life set and did some second generation stamping.  I did the French knots, then inked up the edges.  I mounted it with foam dots onto a card base that I had stamped with the text background. I scored it and stamped a sentiment from Signature Greetings as well. 
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, grey
Stamps: PTI's BB: Text, Life, Signature Greetings
Ink: Fresh Ink steel blue, pear
Misc: MS scoring tool, foam dots
