Yay! Today is the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop Day and I've been able to play with my PTI stash. The challenge was to use embroidery thread on a project and when I looked through my stamps, the flying trail from Little Lady jumped out at me as begging for a little thread.

I stamped it in spring rain ink then pierced holes before stitching with matching embroidery floss. I used the butterfly dies to cut two sizes of butterfly and stamped them with two shades of blue ink before stitching around the smaller butterfly, moulding them to get some dimension, and sticking them onto the end of the trail. I used one of the fillable frames dies to create the sentiment tag and then layered up the card and mats. I softly inked all the white areas of card so there wasn't such a stark contrast and stamped a trail of small butterflies to lead the eye through the card. I found some stripey ribbon that had quite a sheen to it and added a few gems for a little more bling.
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the hop today. As this card is destined for a special lady, I'm going to enter it into the challenge over at Allsorts
