A Spoon full of Sugar

The challenge sketch on A Spoon Full of Sugar this week is lovely, too bad I didn't really think about the layout of my card before I put knife to paper, hence a rather loose interpretation of the sketch but I think it still qualifies...just!!

The image is funstamps & the papers are from stash. The stitching is done by hand using rather lovely embroidery floss made of pure linen, you can't really tell in the picture, but the effect is quite matt & textured, completely different from the normal kind.

I am lucky enough to have a bona-fide cross-stitch designer as a close friend & she sorted me the entire range of threads from DMC because I helped her with some stuff for a Craft show at Olympia earlier in the year :)
