Stamp-a-Faire 2014: Regency Needlepoint Elegance

I loved this challenge!  I used to cross-stitch all the time.  I love having a die to use that technique on cards.  I taught my daughter Emily how to do it and she's decided she wants to try a cross-stitch project now.  I have lots of patterns for her to choose from!  :)

I chose three shades of pink floss for my stitched flower.  After I was done, I added some strips of Sweet Blush and Hibiscus Burst cardstock, plus a strip of polka dot print from the Regency Era collection, and popped up the whole piece on a Sweet Blush card base.  My sentiment is from Green Thumb, an oldie but goodie!
