I did this as part of the portfolio challenges over at Sweet Shoppe Designs and love having something a bit creative hanging on my wall next to my paints and buttons and other doo-dads... it's fun to look at and was fun to put together... I wrapped the embroidery hoop in woodgrain washi tape since it was a super cheap plastic hoop... and had fun cutting everything with the Silhouette and assembling it... I also used a bit of gesso behind the "create" alpha to make it pop and not blend in to the paper as much...
