Introducing Spellbinders Stitched Alphabet

Got an email a few weeks ago from Spellbinders asking me to help introduce a new collection - Stitched Alphabet - that hits their store today, May 14th. I was so surprised as it came out of nowhere.

Design work makes me very anxious. I second guess everything I make, and honestly, the cards I make "on demand" tend to not be ones I like. But, I've decided to try and tackle that anxiety. So - here's a card using "U"  from the Stitched Alphabet collection. 

I chose not to stitch the letters, but I'll be sharing another card in a few days with some stitching. I added some die cut flowers and greenery from Spellbinders Simply Perfect Layered Blooms Etched Dies and a sentiment that Spellbinders donated to a Crop & Create virtual event that I attended a few months ago. 

NOTE: Spellbinders provided me with a few letters from the Stitched Alphabet set. I provided everything else!

MOOD WHEN DONE: I did it! It's a good feeling.

Great job!
I saw your post of this card this morning on Instagram, and thought it was great! My husband just got back from the Post Office, and brought me the Spellbinders May Large Die set of the month. I wanted you to know that your card is sweet and perfect, and I will probably not stitch any of the dies, but will use your idea, if you don't mind:)
I understand your anxiety, but you got this! Keep it up!

You've described me in a nutshell. I love the look of this, stitched or not. The colors and flowers are wonderful. You always do a great job with your design work and that's why you were asked.
