KLSNS Challenge #22

Today was my turn to host the challenge at KLSNS.  Since today is the first day of Spring ~ although I think Wisconsin may have missed the memo because it is snowing and looks more like the first day of winter than the first day of spring (what happened to the beautiful weather we had just earlier this week?) ~ and National Quilting Day, I decided to combine the two and came up with today's challenge of Flowers and Stitching (either real or faux). 
I used some of the adorable Sugarplums from the CC Designs Sugarplums Spring Kit and colored them with copics.  This particular paper from the Basic Grey Lemonade pack reminded me of a quilt, so I took it a step further and stitched it to look like squares of fabric.  Since this paper is quite busy, I kept the embellishments to a bare minumum, just adding flowers to the grass.
Please join us this week, and show us your flowers and stitching.  This week the top three will win a blinkie for their blog.   

Stop by and visit the rest of the DT to see the fantastic creations they came up with this week.

I'll have to come back later to add challenges, because I've got lots to do!
