Cheery Lynn Designs In Stitches Challenge

The challenge this week at Cheery Lynn Designs is In Stitches (real or faux).  I have used the beautiful Lords & Common dies which work wonderful with embroidery floss.  I only added a few cross stitches, but you can add lots should you desire.  I began with an A2 card base; 4.25 x 5.5 inches.  I added 3 layers from the Lords & Commons Boutique Stacker A2 Frames using dimensional foam between layers.  I added the center from the coordinating Lords & Commons Doily as my center focal point.  I used 3 strands of embroidery thread to add my cross stitches.  I popped this center circle up as well.

I added two of the smallest flowers from my Poinsettia Strip and two small Holly Leaves.  And lastly added some red Stickles accents.
