So proud of my stitching

I look at cards on blogs with fabulous stitching and always feel envious of their skills, the stitching really takes a card to another level. I have spoilt many a card trying to stitch it on my machine. So today I said "right Jane , you can do it ", I took it slowly and well I'm very pleased with the results.
The papers are first edition , blank canvas and the beautiful sentiment is pink petticoat , nature sentiments. The little butterfly is a sizzix die , cut twice and some gems added .

It has rained all day here and it's cold, mind some folks have had snow. We are all going to Bob's parents for dinner,even the poodles , Alfies been bathed for the outing.It will be nice to get out and enjoy someone  elses' s cooking for a change.
Enjoy the rest of Sunday. janex

Great card Jane and super straight stitching. I agree with you that it takes cards to another level. I keep saying I'll have another go at it but chicken out all the while.
