Well I'm pleased to say that my son's operation was successful, and he is now home again. He'll have his stitches out on 1st October, and hopefully start physiotherapy soon afterwards. But he's on the mend at least.
The white stitching is actually faux stitching made with a white gel pen, but the green stitching has been done with embroidery silk. In both cases you will need to prick the paper first.
The Prima flowers were distressed using chalk, and Distress Stickles, with buttons added to the centres. This card was made for display at Sir Stampalot where I am a member of their design team.
Hope you like it even though it's too late for the challenge.
