"sewing"

Happy Tuesday...I feel like its been forever since I last blogged! I took a break from card making...I needed some down time after finally finishing all of my orders!! The fam and I went to a Crawfish Boil at our friend's house this weekend...it was a lot of fun. Then Shawn and I were able to sneak away for a date night! I even got a nap on Sunday!! It was a great weekend! Ok...on to card details...So for forever now I have been wanting to sew on a card and I decided yesterday to take a short break from my house cleaning and laundry duties to give it a try! When I finally decided to do it this was as brave as I got...to sew a stitch down the middle of the stem and to accent the leaves. I was going to do around the edge of the card but I didn't want to mess it up. It's a start though! I will keep practicing and see how much braver I get! I added some crystal effects to the flowers to make them shine and I added a tiny piece of chocolate chip dsp behind the stem to make it stand out more. I opted to leave the rest of the card empty so that you could see the gorgeous design on the paper!
Have a good rest of your day!
