My “Fa La La” Finish

SDC11059  SDC11057

Here is my LHN “Fa La La” finish, I stitched this piece on 32c Murano Ivory and intend to stitch them all on 32c. I used Six Strand Sweet Threads instead of the recommended DMC ones, and omitted the beads on the design for stitches, I finished it as a hanging cushion style ornament with a dark red bead trim.
