A different version of Winter Violets

Wanted to share the first Just Nan design I've ever stitched... which is funny cause for my first not only did I change the colours up, I didn't stitch it for me!

The design is Winter Violets - http://www.justnan.com/wvss.html

Colours changes were (DMC):
Instead of B5200 I used 3837 (B5200 faded too much into the colour of the fabric I was using.)
To replace where the 3837 should have been I brought in 3804.
Instead of stitching the flower centres with the recommended colours, I added Mill Hill Petite Glass Beads 40123.

I stitched this up and finished it as a scissor fob to gift to a friend for her birthday :)

I will be re-stitching this in the original colours, with fabric close to the recommended and putting it in the frame that came for it; and that will be for me! ;)

More photos of the back are here: http://www.geekchixxx.com/2009/05/mystis-scissor-fob/
Didn't think it appropriate to share here as it wasn't specifically a Just Nan design I stitched on the back, but one of my own.
