I have had so much fun making this card, I stitched onto yellow whitewash color core card stock, I embossed one side and went over it with an emery board, then i die cut the shapes and punched out some yellow butterflies, I added a yellow ribbon, to finish, the pattern is from Ann's paper art, it is pattern NO a721.

I found it a little difficult trying to choose a pattern for my Uncle's birthday Card, I usually make a card with golf on it, but decided i wanted to do something different for a change, so i chose this pattern from the book New Designs, New Projects for Embroidery on Paper by Erica Fortgens, I really like the end result, I hope he likes it too.

I decided to do something a little bit different, and made some boxes, the first box, the pattern is from the book Uren Borduren, by Erica Fortgens, i have shrunk the pattern down to fit, it has got black rice beads and silver silver seed beads, I have added a flower bead in the centre with a small black bead, then added a white ribbon to finish the box, it was trial and error in making this box, but i'm very pleased with the result.

The pattern for this card is from Ann's paper art Forum, and is a free pattern for the members, I enjoyed stitching this one and have used the Go Kreate dies, I coloured in the leaves and added a peel off border, then mounted it with 3d foam squares.
This card was made for a friend who recently lost her dear Mum, I used the Cross pattern from HJ Yearbook 2010/2011 and the lily pattern is from Easy Embroidery on Paper by Joke De Vette, I have mounted it onto black mirri card and added some silver and black ribbon and a few silver stones.
I felt like doing something a little different to what i normally do, so with this card, i have used my nestabilitiies dies and put the fairy on to the cut out shapes, i decided to stitch this beautiful pattern from Ann's paper art in a bright pink and green thread, I have added some pink pearls and some ribbon to finish.
