I used the new Embroidery Floss Die, Stitched Circle Die and the In Stitches stamp set :)
I die cut the stitched circle first...then I planned out my design and stitched with embroidery floss.  I die cut the embroidery hoop and glued it on top of the cactus image.  Lastly I stamped my sentiment

Thanks for joining us!
