Easter cross stich card

Ok here is another card for today. I have actually made this for an order...hope she doesn't come checking out my blog...I just wanted to enter it into Ooh La La's challenge this week, which is Happy Easter.

This is one of my rare cross stitch cards I make, usually for the same person who orders them for her nearest and dearest. This one is for her beautiful Granddaughter. The pattern was from the latest issue of Cross Stitch Card Shop and was much simpler to stitch that some others I've done! I wanted to display it slightly differently for a change so I put it through my Joy machine with a Nestie and then cut a larger pink card mount. *Tip* paint the edges of the Aida fabric with clear nail varnish to prevent it fraying. I stuck the fabric to the card with Pinflair bookbinding glue.

I think this is a pretty card and I'm sure it will be well received.
