PTI March Blog Hop

I had to make my own stitched flowers as I do not own any of the PTI stitched stamp sets.
I used the new anniversary set Painted Petals and thought the beautiful flower from this set would be perfect to going around and doing a faux stitch.  I used a gold uniball pen for most of the flowers and leaves, some of the smaller flowers I used a copic multiliner pen and also a little bit of white uniball.
