Faux Stitchwork with Dilly Beans

Happy Aloha Friday!
is playing with 

for our ongoing challenge
to use real or faux stitching.

Here's my take...

The digi I used is Doodle Flower
and I had every intention to actually handstitch some accents...
of course it was not turning out the way I wanted.
I went with the faux stitching instead from my dies and added a few
hand drawn stitches on the leaves and outer flower petals.
This drawn flower is just so whimsical and fun that I ended up printing
a bunch on different colored cardstock and doing some paperpiecing.

I loved the boldness of the flower and went simple with just a tone
on tone background (Hero Arts Highline Chalkboard) and some 
gold foil paper with a vellum backing to 
make the sentiment (Simon Says Stamp Thanks Craft die) stand out.

Hope you all have some great weekend plans.
This gal is on call, but I hope to squeeze some crafty time in!
