Stitched Rose

Hi again,
After a quick coffee with friends this morning, I came back home and spent the rest of the day with our two youngest grandchildren. When little Isaac went to sleep, Layla decided she wanted to make a card, I wish I had taken a scan of it before she went home as it turned out quite nice.  She is only four, but did a good job on colouring an image of a surfer and helping to make a surfboard background. She is quite keen on making cards and usually has a bit of a go when I have the time to help her.  She really likes turning the handle on the Cuttlebug and making diecuts and embossing.
I played around with making my DT card for Make It Monday and just have to get a decent picture of it.
My card for today has some paper embroidery on as the main feature. This is one of my other crafting passions although I don't do it as often as I would like.
Here it is:

Inside of card
SU Cherry Cobbler cardstock for the basecard
