With thanks

Wanted to make a 'thank you' card which was stitched, and this blog posting gave me some indirect inspiration.  Design Sponge uses a threadless sewing machine to stitch holes into a piece of card, something I've done before but had pretty much forgotten about. 

I appropriated the idea and used it to punch holes for the letters, using a pin for the curves which were too tricky for my machining.  The stitches are either chain or Holbein, with a buttonhole wheel for the 'O', and some french knots on the flowers.  All in all, fairly quick and fun to do.
