As you know I recently spent some time overseas. When in Australian the couple who hosted me really pulled out all the stops and so this is the card I made to thank them for their right royal spoiling of yours truly.
I took my inspiration from this image.
A similar card made using the same pattern and just a slightly different variation of card stock colours.
I used artist pastels to shade the inside of the leaves in green and smudged them with an earbud.
Here are a couple of other cards using this lovely pattern.
Pattern: Easy Embroidery on Paper by Joke de Vette
Card stock: Kraft, red and sea green in 160gsms
Thread: DMC in Blanc, Scraps of olive green, sea green and red
Flat backed gems in champagne and red for centre of flowers
