Greeting Card - Thread Work 2

Off late thread work on card fascinates me more than any other creative works.
These works are called Embroidery on card or thread work on card.
It is an adaptation of string art on card with threads.

Things needed :
Machine embroidery silk thread, different colors
needle size 10 or 11
disposable syringe to prick holes on card.

The first balloon bunch is an inspiration from an advertisement that came on newspaper.
I made free hand drawing on a card.
Pricked holes.
Then worked through holes with different colors of thread.

Here I wanted to do butterflies. Here I used multi colored embroidery thread.
I made on a card.
Then pasted over an old invitation card.

This is also done on an old invitation card. 
I drew circles first.
Then divided these circles into equal parts. 
then made repetitive designs.
Here also used needle size 10 and silk embroidery threads.

This card is two work combined together.
The center piece is bead work on a cross stitch cloth.
This cloth has been attached on an old invitation.
Maple leaves are drawn along the circumference.
Then filled the surface of the leaves by string art.
Then highlighted the edges also with thread.
