I um-ed and ah-ed about which board I should ask this on, but decided on this one as you are all so helpful.  Grin

I'm making a simple little button tree wedding card for a friend, and this is where I'm up to:



My question is, is it finished? I had originally thought I'd do some grass and flowers and bark on the tree, but now I think it might be too much. Also, does the love heart stand out enough? I did it in back stitch, but maybe split stitch would be better?

The colour behind the tree is sky blue, but the flash has distorted it a bit.

Thanks

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

I think it's enough. The only thing you may want to try, although it might be too much, is to put some buttons like falling leaves-maybe some smaller ones. I like it just the way it is.

I'd keep it simple like it is.  I think it's lovely, and the hearts really show up well as things stand.  Smiley  Nicely done!

Looking to de-stash cross stitch magazines, particularly Cross Stitch Gold or New Stitches?  Please drop me a line!  I'd love to swap or buy some missing from my library!
