Topic: Paper Embroidery
The paper embroidery alphabet swaps are marching right along. The current one assigned us to do Swirls for the letter S.
I flipped through a lot of borders and frames for one that I liked, thinking I would add some 3D florals to it.
But then I ran across this cupcake with swirled icing and I knew that was what I wanted to stitch.
I picked an embossed white cardstock with more swirls and pricked out the pattern on that.
I chose a bright verigated thread for stitching and then used a lighter thread for the candle plus light yellow for the flame.
I mounted the stitched panel on a bright floral over a white base card.
I used a colored flower with a rhinestone center and a silver peel-off for embellishment.
