Stitching and shimmer

Happy Friday blogger peeps!
Today's card is the one which I actually sat down to de-stress myself, and it is not for any DT commitments or any challenges. But it was solely to do what I love, which is Embroidery.

I had used the free card front front Inspired by Stamping.
Printed off, and pierced the design, my piercing mat was destroyed 2 weeks back, when my craft room window shattered into pieces because of the storm. So this piercing felt like ages yesterday, but it was so worth it.

After stitching the flowers using shaded orange floss, I colored the stems using a marker and added a matching orange base and colored the butterfly using markers in yellow and plum colors.
I used wink of stella on the flowers and the bee, and added a few sequins to finish off.
