This is another of my paper embroideries. This pattern is from a book called Embroidery on Paper for Cardmakers, by Annie and Nico Heesakkers. I added the beads to the stamens and enlarged the pattern to 110%. In the book, the thread colors are different and a flower is in the center. I tried a flower, but the buttons looked so much better.
It was hard to get a good photo of the threads true colors, but this is pretty close. The green matches the green c/s mch better IRL, than it does here.
