This challenge was to use a specific pattern - this crown.
I selected a coral cardstock and stitched with gold and silver metallic threads. The crown was then embellished with self-stick rhinestones in a variety of sizes. I used a scallop border punch along the bottom, added peel-off borders and mounted to black and white striped cardstock over a black card base.
As you can see, being metallic, it does not photograph well in a front view. It also throws the color off. In this close-up angle you get a better view of the stitching as well as a more realistic color rendition.
I like this pattern ans will probably use it again.
