Birthday card for a good friend

It was a friends birthday on Thursday so I had to stitch a card 🙂 I found it hard choosing a motif though and in the end settled on a little rose from one of the latest Crossstitch Collection magazines.
As usual I left it quite late and was speed-stitching so she could actually receive it on her birthday. My cross stitch stash is quite limited so it was lucky that I had the necessary floss colours, well it’s because of Rose Dreaming really as that project has about 50 shades of pink if not more. I wasn’t quite as lucky with the greens so I went with a different green, avocado green instead of whatever the charted one was. It turned out rather well if I do say so myself, I used the pearl-flecked white 28-count brittney evenweave for it, just to add some extra bling.


Here is a close up of the rose, should also add this is the first time I’ve stitched over two on evenweave and it was really confusing at first but then got easier.
