Thank You Sew Much!

Hey Ya'll,
I have a very special card to share with you today.  Recently, we won a set of Pro-Markers from Enfys at Going Buggy.  Anytime we win any sort of Blog Candy (YAY!) we always send a Thank You card.  So this one went all the way to the UK for our wonderful friend Enfys.
For this card, I used papers from the Elise Cartridge on the imagine.  The Thank You sentiment and the sewing machine are from Everyday Pop-Up Cards.  The flowers are from Mother's Day Bouquet.  The butterfly is from Anna Griffin's Floral Stamp Collection.  The Ovals are from George and Basic Shapes.
I used Glossy Effects on the sewing machine and the fonts.  I made my mat and added lacy and velvet ribbon.  I then ran it thought the sewing machine with two straight stitches and a zig zag stitch.  I then went around the entire mat.  I also stitched the oval.  I used a piece of burgundy velvet trim through the center of the oval.  I added a couple of buttons and tied a bit of bakers twine in the center.
The inside was kept very simple so that I could write a lot.  The mats were also sewn.  I know we are going to enjoy the markers and look forward to learn more about using them correctly.  I sure hope that Enfys enjoys her card.  I would love to hear what you think of it.  Thanks so much for visiting today!
