Stitched Love

There are quite a few Valentine/Love themed challenges going on right now so I made this fun little shape card to enter in some of my favorites.
I've been wanting these embroidery hoop dies (from Waffle Flower) for quite a while, and finally broke down and bought them with Christmas money. I die cut the mid sized one three times and layered it up before adding some gray card-stock and gray sparkly glitter to the clasp at the top.
While I was shopping (ebay), I also found some stitched looking stamps (from Taylored Expressions). They fit the dies perfectly!
Supplies and Tools:
Dies/Punches: Embroidery Hoops (Waffle Flower), Scallop Square Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Tiny Tattered Florals (Tim Holtz), Frond Punch (Martha Stewart)
Embellishments: Pearls, Glitter, Crinkle Ribobn
Inks: Abandoned Coral, Fired Brick, Vintage Photo, Gathered Twigs, Walnut Stain, Ground Espresso Distress Inks (Tim Holtz), Walnut Stain Distress Oxide (Tim Holtz)
Stamps: Stitch by Stitch (Taylored Expressions)
Tools: Scoring Board (Martha Stewart)

Love your stitched Valentine - stitching seems to be "in" right now. I "used" to cross stitch but the eyes just won't cooperate anymore. LOL
