New Pattern from Ann's Paper Art

 Ann has started the New Year with 3 beautiful new patterns for January.
The pattern I have stitched is a671 and is available from the webshop now.
The threads used are Mettler Polysheen, 1755, 6043, 741.
The decoupage is by Marieke Design 2377 and she fits perfectly in the pattern.
I decided to add little flowers using the Nellie Snellen Shape die SD004, which have been slightly coloured with  Colourbox Fluid Chalk.
 Light green Hobbydots have been placed in the centre.
The corners have been punched and a pearl added.
