This is another card I entered into out County fair. This one got a Second place.
Again, I have a wonderful SCS friend in Bridget to thank for the beautiful blue embroidery floss. One of the blue threads has a nice sparkle in it.
I have to admit, this was one of the more difficult embroideries that I've done on paper.
Thank you Bridget, for the beautiful threads!!

It's 1st in my eyes, Jennifer! This is gorgeous and your hand-stitching is exquisitely done.....the effect is stunning. No one does these hand stitched cards as beautifully as you. A treat for the eyes.

I am glad to see this pattern finished. I looked at it today, but will have to find a different die shape than what I am currantly using. With all the different dies I have, this might be a good project for "in the house all day winter work"

AH, give me copics!! I would give up before I would get all that beautiful thread work done. Makes me appreciate your talent all the more. What a beautiful job you've done. Love the delicateness of your design and the freshness of the blue and white palette.
