Grandmothers 90th

Made this card for my children to give to my Grandmother for her birthday. As you can see I am loving these colour tones at the moment. As on my previous post I do struggle with the sentiments but seeing as this is the main feature of the card it has turned out exactly as I planned and I am really rather pleased with the result. I created my own paper aida and then cross stitched the sentiment, the worst thing was to punch all the holes!
I am entering this card in the for May which is Butterflies and Blossoms :)
Products used -
Anitas square card blank
Laura Ashley backing paper
Bazzill basics green card stock
Tim Holtz distress ink, Antique Linen
That butterfly punch, again!
Rymans white cardstock for the aida
