Father's Day - July Unicorn

Hello everyone!

I have a card to show you today that is featured over at Unicorn Challenge Blog.

 Our challenges start on 1st September and we are showcasing some of our DTs work in the lead up to launch, please come on over and have a look!
The image is of a 1930 Alfa Romeo by Debra Page and is from 365 Cross Stitch Designs magazine volume 4.  It was stitched 2 over 2 using the recommended DMC threads on 28 count evenweave. I layered it with brown card and stripy paper (from a Christmas pack!) and added a stamped sentiment and some pearls.

I would like to enter my card in to the following challenges:

Thanks for stopping by today and don't forget to follow us at Unicorn!
