I made this for my brother's girlfriend for Christmas. 
The stitching is just a simple backstitch alphabet that I doubled the size of.  It's in a 10x20 frame.  I covered the mat with wrapping paper that I had and chose the embroidery floss colors to match the wrapping paper..

That's beautiful. I never would have thought it was simple wrapping paper. Terrific job.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

I think this is a terrific idea, well executed.
Perhaps these can be mass produced and sent to the major world leaders to remind them what the purpose of life is...  Smiley

The stitching and sentiment is lovely. I could tell this was one of yours by the framing - beautiful.
