Inspired by Nature - Ooh La La Challenge #131

Today I decided that I would enter the Ooh La La Challenge -' Inspired by Nature'.
I needed something gentle to sit and do so I was inspired to do some stitching.  I chose a William Morris design of tulips which I obtained from Pinbroidery.  It may have been gentle to do but it was frustrating .  The patterns always seem to be printed very clearly but sometimes they just don't seem to work and a lot of undoing and consequential mutterings happen.
Here it is:


I used the largest die from the Xcut set of Rectangle Parenthesis 1 for the stitching base. The beautiful backing paper is from Cupcakecrafting 'The Premium Collection' CD6  ( a recent rediscovery)  and the mirror card tulips were cut using a Memory Box die - 'Dancing Tulips'.
I did enjoy the stitching -  and also choosing the colour palette.

    Beautiful card, love stitching at the moment I don't seem to do much I must make an effort to do more stitching and parchment
    Are you going to the parchment show in Bristol in June

  2. This is gorgeous Carol, the William Morris flowers are stunning and they go so well with the backing paper. The memory box tulips match so well too.
