I made this for our grandaughter for her birtday card. I sketched it first then free hand machined stiched it.

Very pretty, looks like a lot of work. What type of thread did you use?

Very lovely I am sure she will appreciate it. Did you use a hoop or is it on a heavy stabilizer? Nancy

Thank you ladies - our grand daughter loved it - I never used any special threads all where single colours, and mixed them with my free motion stitching. I ironed steam a seam to the back of the satin and then ironed on a stiff vialeen which made it really stable to stitch, and made a backing in the same manner. Joined them and neated the edges with satin stitch. It made a really nice stiff card. fun to make.
