This fine art counted cross stitch pattern entitled Hearts are Trumps designed from a painting by John Everett Millais shows a group of young women playing cards showcasing their honed skills and strategy which is symbolic of their station in life. Their likenesses were painted at the request of their father who commission the artist. The reason for this scene is to draw attention and awareness to their own social profiles in hopes to meet potential suitors, and whoever wins will be the first to marry. The scene has a lot of intriguing colors and textures, and most noted is the intensity of the one daughter's gaze as she looks right at us with imploring eyes. Only full cross stitches are used in our patterns. No blended colors are used. We only use an abundance of solid colors as it produces a more realistic effect.
