Papertrey Blog Hop - Embroidery Thread - Masculine Leaf

Here is 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 make a more masculine card.  I used the Moroccan impression plate on kraft card stock, wrapped a deep rich rusty brown embroidery thread, and then used my In Bloom die set to cut out the leaf.  I stamped it with the leaf and coloured it in, using the pen more heavily on some parts to add dimension.  I popped up the leaf on foam dots and mounted the impressed panel on a grey card base.
 Here's a look a little more up close:
Make sure to take a look at all of my submissions for this blog hop - I went a little embroidery thread crazy! :) 

Paper: Staples grey, kraft
Stamps: PTI In Bloom
Ink: Versafine black onyx inkpad
Misc: PTI's Moroccan impression plate, In Bloom dies, green marker, foam dots, embroidery floss
