I used Ann's Paper Art Pattern No a336 for this one, sometimes i think the pattern doesn't need anything else added to it as it is perfect just the way it is, i really do enjoy doing the embroidery on it's own, i think the simplicity of the design is so lovely it speaks for itself.

Lilac Flowers

I stitched this one in Lilac and Green threads, something i wouldn't normally do, but i really like the way it has turned out, i have used Ann's Paper Art pattern No a231, i punched some butterflys from gingham glitter card and backed the flower pot in the same card, i added a few gems to finish.

90th Birthday Card

I made this card for a friends Mum's 90th birthday, i used Ann's pattern No a609, i think this is a very beautiful pattern and it was perfect for what i wanted to do, i have backed it with some red and gold silk hand made papers and cut the flowers from the same papers, this is my first easel card, it's turned out better than i could have hoped for.

Black and Silver

I thought i would try something different, so i bought this new book Kleurrijk borduren op papier By Erica Fortgens and i love it, i have stitched the pattern onto ColorCore Cardstock, the whitewash collection, i used black and silver thread and silver beads, i also added black and silver ribbon and a few silver gems, i'm really pleased how it has turned out and want to buy more ColorCore card stock because i like the affect that it has with the embroidery.
