Square stitched frame in aqua

Two more cards made using the square stitching die from Ann's Paper Art and both are in shades of aqua.  I thought that I'd photographed the same card twice but the patterned papers, the gemstones and the thread colours used on the flowers petals tell them apart.  Had I looked beyond the card then I'd have noticed that the cloth behind them is also set different.

As well as self coloured threads in shades of aqua a variegated thread was used which went from light to dark in colour as well as changing shades.

The patterned paper used for these cards was from the Nitwit Collection Snow Princess Solids.


 Flat backed pearls, clear gemstones, aqua satin ribbon and a Happy Birthday silver peel-off were the embellishments added to the cards.

Hope you've enjoyed the change in colour theme today.
