Less is more challenge 339

I recently made a card for a close friends wedding day. I think it will fit the challenge Pierce your project as I cross stitched the heart as the centre piece of the card. I used to use cross stitch on cards a lot but I have recently moved on to using stamps and other paper crafts more. I do still really enjoy cross stitch but it is very time consuming. I find it very calming because if you don't concentrate you will go wrong and then spend loads of time unpicking, and if you do concentrate it calms your mind down.

Here is the card:

Whilst I am only entering the card in this challenge, I thought you might like to see the sampler and gift tag that I made to go with it.
The chart used came from the final edition of Cross Stitch Collection magazine published in February 2017.

My friends wedding day was spectacular we had the most wonderful day. Everything about it was stunning but the flowers were particularly memorable. Here is just a little taster, they look amazing even under the grey sky. Thanks so much Jenny for allowing us to share your special day with you.

Thanks for visiting my blog.

I used to spend hours doing cross stitch a few years ago, so lovely to see it used on a card. Love the double coloured frame too.
Thanks so much for sharing with us at Less is More, Anita x

I would still spend hours cross stitching, but there aren't enough hours in the day to do everything I want. I don't think I will stop doing it completely though, it is so satisfying.
