My youngest sister designed the invite for my middle sister's wedding. I wanted to give my sister and her husband something a bit more interesting than the wedding list bowls so, despite the slightly complex rose design, I thought I'd have a go at embroidering the design.

And here is the original invitation:

I left it outline as I am an impatient procrastinator (aka I started it three days before the wedding Roll Eyes ). However, I am pretty pleased with how it turned out and my sister wants to hang it on the wall so I think she likes it too  Cheesy

Beautiful. Maybe I'll do this with for my friends wedding.

Oh, and I love that you just outlined it. Sometimes filling stitches in makes it look cluttered.

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