Just a quick Saturday night post to introduce the February theme of the Fadengrafik Challenge: Valentine's Day. Feel free to add up to three of your love-themed paper embroidery projects until March 1. The more you add, the bigger your chance to win a little something ;)
For my DT insiration I decided to stitch a new pattern, so instead of using one of my favourite heart-motifs, I went for this swirly pendant/dreamcatcher-like arrangement. 
It's kept in shimmering silver and red colours, with a couple of gemstones for some more bling. The white space in the center of the card might be used to place a sentiment or dedication if necessary.
For the background, I decided to stick with the given colours, so I used a paper with snowflakes that was labeled as Christmas-themed, however with no visible sights of Christmas it might fit to any wintry occasion ;)
