Thread Work - Floral Design

I made this card with Embroidery thread.
Here I tried Circular Geometrical Design.

Things needed :
Old invitation card
needle size 10 or 11
embroidery  silk thread
syringe or pins to make holes on card
measuring scale
compass to draw circles

I have taken an invitation card and used the wrong side to do this embroidery.
First measured the length and breadth of the card using a scale.
Margins are drawn using a scale and pencil.

Then fixed the center point of the card.
In the top one made a circle and divided into equal parts.
Then made small circles on all the four corners of the card.
The bottom one is also circle design.
I tried pure string art to do colorful circular border.

I pricked holes over the card by keeping it on a thermacol sheet using a syringe.
The holes has to be carefully made at regular intervals along the drawing line.
I have used machine embroidery silk thread and size 10 needle.
Done the stitching with single thread only.
The tension to be uniform to get desired result.
