Card swap

Today I received this lovely hand stitched card from Vicki in the UK.
I love the colours and the way Vicki added so many different stitches and beads to this lovely flower in the center. Thank you Vicki, I really love this card!

This is the card I sent in return
It´s the first time I worked with velvet. The white parts are velvet and the various blue horizontal lines are yarn stitched down by machine. I then cut up the velvet piece and layered it on a piece of Pelmet Vilene that was painted with Lumiere. Then I added a layer of Tulle and free machine quilted it down with blue and silver thread.
