July Card Chain Challenge

I made this card to send to Gundi for the July Card Chain Challenge.  I used the Colour Option (Red, White & Blue) and the Product/Technique Option (Something a friend sent you/Stitches).  My card uses a Mouseloft seahorse cross stitch pattern that a friend gave me last year.

I stitched the seahorse in two shades of blue and used red thread (rather than the green on the pattern) for the weeds as this matched the colours in the challenge.  I made the frame from red card using two stitched circle dies.  The fabric was trimmed to fit behind the frame and this was then attached to the centre of the card.

To make this card I used:
     5" x 5" white matt card blank
     Mouseloft 'Seahorse' cross stitch pattern
     My Favorite Things 'Outside In Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics' dies
     White 14hpi aida
     DMC threads 307, 310, 702, 995 & 996
     Snippet of red matt card

I am entering the following challenges:

The stitched seahorse is such a nice look for this card, Kath. I love that you used red thread for the seaweed.
