Weeds




Weeds can't grow in places you have planted flowers.

What a lovey reference of better things to come for a friend going through a difficult time. The background to the sentiment was sponged first, then stitched. The sentiment is a sticker that was left over from scrapbooking. I'm so happy to have used it in a new application, having been inspired by the blog SRM Stickers. For the ribbon embellishment I stitched and then gathered two lengths of the same white satin ribbon (one being dyed in the same tone as the sentiment panel). The bottom white layer peeks out in a few spots. To reiterate the sentiment and add a pop of color, I attached two pins from a collection I had received as a gift (thanks Smokey Joe!) which completes the requirements for the color challenge at SPCC.

Supplies Used: SU Apricot Appeal Cardstock and Ink, Fancy Pants Harvest Pins in Red and Pink, Sentiment Sticker by EK Success, White Satin Ribbon, Thread
