I adore the magnificent color scheme you have chosen for your creation. Instead of using greens and reds. Your coloring is outstanding and the stitching is a lovely touch!!! That ribbon is splendid and really sets it off.

Thanks for joining us for the first challenge at “In A Sweet Pea Dream” and best of luck!
