Blue embroidery

This  may  seem  a  strange looking  card  at  first  but  I  wanted  the  end  result  to  appeal  to  an  embroiderer   with the  embroidery  hoop  and  the  embroidery  partly  completed and  the needle  and  cotton still on  the  card  .

I  used 
Serif  program  for  the  knitted  and lace  background  ,
Background  Dotty  blue  Card
Card  circle  border  embossed  with  X  cut lace  circle  border  and  coloured  with  promarkers 
Canvas  paper  (to  look  like  needlework  aida  )  stamped  with  Little  Claire  Digistamp flower in  blue .
Stitches  coloured  with  promarkers  .
Embellishments  are  ----
Tape  measure  Ribbon  from  Crafty  Ribbons  (this is  white  but  I  coloured it  tan  .)   Buttons  diecut  scisors  and    needle  ,cotton  and  sentiment  from  my  stash  .

I  would like  to  enter  this  card into  the  following  challenges  ------
