Cover Pen Embroidery

In between doing a model stitching job for Victorian Motto, I managed to put together a piece I stitched months ago. I found this model here: Dame-Valiste. This model was also featured in Passion Fil Issue No. 11. I used one of my favorite antique pearl buttons to top this piece off. I stitched on 30 count cream linen & DMC 815.
I loved using this cotton linen blen polka dot fabric. It comes in one piece with half sold color and cream dots and half cream color with color dots so it matches perfectly and it comes in other colors as well.

I also stitched this tiny cameo using 40 count natural linen DMC B5200 and a peach color for the rose. Not sure what number. I used an old stash of JP Coates Embroidery thread that was clear with shimmer for the spaces in her hair to give it a sparkle.
Now I am not sure what to do with it. The cameo was from the book Le Marquoir by Corrine Leroy HERE
