a friend of mine who has a birthday this month. I am obviously in a stitching mood and found this very pretty alphabet letter on the Pinbroidery site. In fact I purchased all the letters as they are lovely to stitch and they do look good when finished.
I decided that I didn't want a plain white background for the stitching so I scanned a piece of backing paper from a CD that I found in my box and printed it out on to 300gsm pearlised card, which is my preferred medium for stitching. I liked the soft pink hue that resulted and I felt it wouldn't overpower the colour of the stitches. I added a chiffon bow and matching half pearls. I think the backing paper came from Jane Shasky's CD
