Purty flowers!!

I spent 20 minutes at my local AC Moore this evening attempting to match up DMC embroidery floss to the new Stampin’ Up! In Colors. Here’s my results…I think I got pretty close!


The colors I matched are as follows (from left to right):
Rich Razzleberry – DMC#3802
Soft Suede – DMC#3790
Dusty Durango – DMC#920
Crushed Curry – DMC#725
Bermuda Bay – DMC#3848
Melon Mambo – DMC#3804

Now I just need to figure out what to use the flowers for…stay tuned!

    Those colour matches are great! Thanks for sharing that. Did you make the pattern for those flowers yourself? If not, where did you find it, if you don’t mind sharing… I don’t crochet, but I am going to try to teach myself to do those for cards – they’re great!

    You did a terrific job not only matching the colors exactly but creating the flowers. I used to crochet but had to give it up because my hands fall asleep holding the crochet hook. I wish I could still make flowers like this. So cool.
