Card for Lucy

This month at Ann's Paper Art I made my exchange card for Lucy.
Once I started stitching this card I could not put it down until it was complete.
This is a new pattern a676 and is available from 
The Threads are Mettler Polysheen, 1755, 6043.  Scansilk 1840.
Rice beads and small glass beads have also been stitched in the pattern.
Before pricking out the pattern I die cut the circle with AND004 which is in the set of the new Stitching Stencils which are also available from the webshop.
The Spellbinder, Delicate Asters HCD726  looks fantastic in the centre, although I have not used all of the elements.
Leane Creatif corners have been coloured with Tim Holtz Distress inks.
Nellie Snellen metal floral spaces with a small brad have been added to the centre of the flower.
The cardstock is something that I picked up locally.
Gems have also been added.
I enjoyed making this card so very much and I hope that you also like it.

Thank-you for coming by and having a look.


  1. Hoi Sharon,

    Wat een super mooie kaart heb je weer gemaakt! Het borduurpatroon ziet er weer schitterend uit, leuk dat je rijstkralen mee hebt geborduurd en strassteentjes erbij hebt geplakt. De hoekjes zijn mooi geïnkt. Het is echt een kunstwerk hoor! Het is elke keer weer een feestje om je nieuwe borduurkaarten te bewonderen.

    Groetjes Lisanne
