My second biscornu

I had a blog giveaway a while ago at my finnish blog and I made a biscornu for the prize. Gloriosa has received it so here are some photos. :)





I ordered the chart from the Creative Poppy. It's from Marie-Anne Réthoret-Mélin and it's called "My petit jardin". I changed it a bit, the original had brown lines, I stitched them with Petite Braid 10. It's like a hint of sparkly snow between the flowers. Too bad it doesn't show so well on the photos. The light pink is also different since I didn't have the thread that was in the chart. It's pretty close though. There's a text "Spring in the garden" stitched around the edge of the back side. The text was also brown on the chart but I decided to use the colours of the flowers. I happened to have the perfect little bead and flower for this. I think there is some biscornu fever going around since this is my second in a short time and third one is on the way. :) I also sent a sign with the biscornu. When I saw it I had to buy it for this prize since the text it so nice: "Cherish Yesterday, Live Today, Dream Tomorrow". I forgot to take a photo of it but you can see it at Gloriosa's blog.
