Cross Stitch Bird Card

A card I made for my sister's birthday, the bird pattern is from Cross Stitcher magazine, and the paper is from Polkadooodle's Back to Nature CD. I crochet the flower and added a button to the centre. The blue lace is from my stash.

I would like to enter this into Polkadoodle's challenge 'make your own embellishments'.

  2. Thanks for playing along at Polkadoodles Rose - beautiful piece of work. The cross stich goes perfectly with the papers - lovely! Great crochet as always. Cheers Claire x P.S. Thanks for the message I am in agony - the perils of furr balls on the stairs.......
