I have something a bit different for you today. It's an anniversary card with not a stitch of hand embroidery to be seen!
The sentiment is computer generated and I machine stitched around it ( sorry just couldn't break totally with my addiction to thread!). I hand cut the heart. To keep the cord exactly aligned with the point of the heart I cut a tiny "v" for it to sit in.
I will be entering it over at Sweet Sunday Sketch were the sketch is
