Thanks sew much!

Hi everyone! Here's a fun card that I did this past weekend using the Sew Thankful set from The Angel Company.

The sewing machine is stamped in Archival black ink from Ranger - I experimented with so many different black inks to get a good solid impression without having to resort to black embossing powder! I decided to give it an old fashioned look and got out the stipple brush and brushed on some Memento desert sand.

The big button is a from a bunch of chipboard shapes that I've had stashed away. I covered it using the Amberley Grace SWIC paper from TAC and tied a satin ribbon through the button holes. All paper is from the same collection except for the brown cardstock. I used a new stitch punch from EK Success on the left hand side to do the faux stitching. Love that punch!

Thanks for stopping by and I'd love to hear what you think of this card!

Really pretty Laurie! I have the same problem sometimes when I try to stamp something solid. Looks like you finally found a good one. Love your faux stitching. ~jeni :)
