Mon Beau Sapin II

This was my version of Mon Beau Sapin by Aurelle. I stitched it for Margaret as part of the Christmas in July Exchange on the CSC board. I have received word that she received it, and loves it (as do her kids!). I started putting gold beads on it and after getting one side done, it looked like overkill to me so I took them all off and used pearlized ones. Thought it looked like snow. :)

Fabric: 22ct Green Aida
Floss: DMC Color Variations 115
Time: 6 hours
Embellishments: Gold Star Button,
Mill Hill Seed Beads, & Satin Ribbon
