Good Fortune

This is my latest counted cross-stitch project.  It has been slightly modified from the instructions.  Why? See the red outline border? That was supposed to be corded and then couched.  I could not get the thread provided to make the cord to cooperate.  I tried for nearly half an hour and finally gave up and decided to do simple backstitch.  I was not really looking forward to trying to couch the cord, either.  Just read thread like the black and gold borders proved to be a challenge.  The red backstitch turned out well, in my opinion, so I am satisfied with it.
