Topic: Paper Embroidery
When I pricked out this embroidery pattern of trees I had every intention of making this a Christmas card. I would have done this by decorating a single tree with beads.
However, after I got all the trees stitched - each in a different shade of green - I liked the effect of having a simple grove of trees. I decided to leave them plain.
The background is a subtle woodgrain.
The addition of a bordered sentiment in dark yellow calls attention to the single star.
I used a dark green patterned paper for the borders.
