Dove of Peace


I love the way this card turned out.  I think it's my favorite Christmas card for this year.  The card embroidery pattern is from Stitching Cards.  This dove of peace is just beautiful.  The pattern suggested using metallic thread but I chose to use regular white and green embroidery floss.  Long before I ever started making cards, I did counted cross stitch and embroidery.  It's so fun to combine some of my favorite crafting mediums.

Entered in the following challenges:
Crafting for all Seasons: Tis The Season
City Crafter Challenge: Favorite technique (mine is stitching)
Try It On Tuesday: Christmas is Coming
