Embroiderd Birthday Card – Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge 568

Stitched Birthday Card - Rosanne Mulhern Heartfelt Stamping

I love when I can combine my favorite hobbies in creative ways.  Today’s card highlights not only my love of paper crafting and card making but also my love of cross-stitch.  The only problem I have is finding enough time for both, along with reading, of course!

My inspiration for this card was the fun sketch from this week’s Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge HERE…I’m new to this challenge but I’m really enjoying the sketches.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you’re looking forward to a relaxing weekend to enjoy your favorite hobby(s)!

Take care,



Stamps:  Handstitched (ret. Neat & Tangled) front sentiment, Best Year (ret. Stampin’ Up!) inside sentiment
Card Stock:  White, Berry Burst
Patterned Paper: Embroidery (Paper Rose)


  1. I love your adorable card, Rosanne. I cross-stitched for several years but it’s been a while since cardmaking is my biggest hobby now. Enjoy the weekend.

    • Thank you, Hilda! I just recently picked up cross stitching again after a few years of not stitching. I’m loving all the new patterns and fabrics. However, it’s becoming difficult to choose between card making and stitching! Have a beautiful spring weekend!

  2. What a charming card! I have a dear friend who does lots of stitching – I so admire your skill. It takes patience and really good eyesight 🙂 Never enough time for all our fun projects. Thank you so much for joining the challenge at Atlantic Hearts this week.

  3. This is gorgeous – love the colours and patterns. Thanks for sharing with us at Atlantic Hearts 🙂

  4. I love this, the colours are fabulous and the papers are so pretty! Your hand stitching is great, I thought it was a stamp or a sticker at first, fabulous! Thanks for playing along with the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge (AHSC).
