Flowers, Buttons...and Sewing?

Well everyone, I've gone and done it. I dug out the sewing machine so I could sew a card. I've been putting this off even though I have admired other peoples' sewn creations from afar. Now I'm afraid I'm hooked. This first attempt has a few slipped stitches, but I'm sure with more practice I will be much better at it!

I used a designer paper from Webster's Pages called Your Life Beautiful, confetti cream cardstock, and an olive green strip from my scrap box. I put the "scene" through the Big Shot with the scalloped circle Nestabilities. I then brayered the sky and the ground before stamping the stems and adding the flower buttons. Before I attached the flower scene I did a straight stitch around the dp and a zig-zag stitch to attach the green. All in all, not a bad first try!

I entered this card into the following challenges:

Flourishes Timeless Tuesday - bought it, use it (just bought the dp on monday couldn't wait to get at it!)
