Christmas Bells - Janlynn

This was the Christmas card I stitched for my parents. The kit came from a charity shop, and although it wouldn't necessarily be a design I'd choose to stitch again, I'm quite pleased with how it turned out. I substituted beads for the charted red and gold french knots, and they added a bit of Christmas sparkle to the design, as well as looking neater. I can't stitch french knots - technically, mine are colonial knots, and they can look a tad baggy!
The card mount had embossed holly leaves on it which was a nice touch, I thought.
