Sneak Preview

I just finished stitching this tonight. The scan really does not do it justice.  I don't know what it is about rayon thread, but it does not scan well.  The thread has a nice gloss to it and the colors are much richer in real life.



I used a chain stitch for the stem.  This is the first time I have chain stitched on paper.  I like it, but I don't think it was the right stitch for this pattern.  The leaves have two layers of green stitching and are outlined with gold.

I will be posting the pattern and instructions as well as the finished card this weekend IF I get my homework done!
