Stitched Banner with Fence and Clouds

A simple and happy scene with bright stitched banners.  I did my banners first, and then it was fun to create a setting for them.  The stitching was easy, thanks to the "holes only" dies in this set. 

In my picture, the white fence and "hello" seem flat, but in real life, they have nice dimension.

Card details:
  • Card stock is Papertrey Ink (PTI) spring rain (light blue), new leaf (green), bright buttercup (yellow), orange zest, pure poppy (red), and stamper's select white. 
  • Dies are PTI picket fence, heart-2-heart #6 (clouds), hoopla: stitched banners, and Elizabeth Craft hello.
  • Thread is white DMC #5 perle cotton.  I did a running stitch from right to left, and then left to right to fill in the gaps.  Backstitching would be smoother, but I like the uneven look for this card.
Created for Operation: Quiet Comfort.
