2015 Finish - Wedding Gift

Here's a finish from September 2015 - Heart in Hand's "Mr. & Mrs." - a gift for my cousin's wedding. It's stitched on 28 ct. tea-dyed Monaco with the called for overdyed threads. I finished it by mounting it to a regular artist's canvas from Michael's. You can't see it in the pictures, but I trimmed the edges with a burlap ribbon, the same ribbon I attached at the bottom of the framed piece (to offset my off center mounting, but I think it worked). It really matched her rustic/country-themed wedding. I actually took these pictures at the wedding since I forgot to take any before we left! It's sitting on the gift table in front of the burlap-covered box they used as their card box.
