Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Something Simple

We have an awesome new sponsor, Unity Stamp Company!  Unity provided each of the Curtain Call designers with an Itty Bitty stamp set for the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge: Something Simple!  The LEAD of this challenge will receive a gift certificate to Unity Stamp Company!

I embossed the anchor and sentiment from the 'Love is My Anchor' set in white on vellum.  I use my Sew Easy tool to run a line of stitching holes across the top of the vellum and then using regular white thread I ran a running stitch using the holes as my guide. Something new for me.
