Birthday Smiles ....
I'm an avid cross stitcher as well as card maker and I love to combine the two crafts whenever I can.  I thought this card might just fit the criteria for this week's challenge on the retro sketches blog.  They put up a sketch each week and invite people to join in with the challenge.

I think I might enter this to the challenge on "Less is More" as the criteria for their challenge is 'felt or fabric'


  1. This looks gorgeous and although there's not a lot of white space it's a super simple design and your embroidery is fab!
    Thanks so much

  2. Oh,WOW!How clever ! Beautiful stitching :)

  3. It fits the criteria perfectly ....your cross stitch is amazing - what a great way to combine both crafts! Thanks for joining in at retro Sketches this week!

  4. Great idea to use cross stitch for your fabric! I used to make cross stitch cards too...don't seem to have time for them anymore!
