Stitching Challenge Blog Entry

I love this free Stitching Challenge Blog pattern from Ann's paper Art, you can download it here,

I decided that this one would be a birthday card for a friend, I played around with the pattern a little so that I could stitch parts of it onto the corners and points of this card, I also Die cut the Flower using a Die From Cheery Lyn Designs No D137 and also Die cut the words, I added some gems to finish, then I scanned the card to my PC and put the picture on the insert, I am really happy with the finished card.

Stitching Challenge.

This  card was made using the Free stitching challenge  blog pattern on  Ann's paper Art Blog, I loved this pattern as soon as I saw it, as I was pricking it out, I realised I could take the pattern apart a little to use on the corners and the points on this card, it's a lovely pattern to stitch.
