Mothers Day card

Hiya! I hope you're enjoying the weekend so far. I'm back with a card I've made for Jamie's mum, using this weeks MFT Sketch. She retired just over a year ago and has recently been learning to sew. The new Carta Bella pad is perfect for cards for her so I made a full-on sewing themed card! The stitched sentiment is one I made on the PC, printed out and pierced holes through to the pink paper, then just sewed through them - easy peasy! I didn't actually end up using any MFT goodies on the front of my card, just a couple of dies on the inside. This is also for this weeks Simon Says Stamp challenge of Buttons. I hope you like it, thanks for looking!

Sentiment stamps - Papertrey Ink 'Keep it Simple: Birthday Mini'
Paper - Carta Bella 'Sew Lovely'
Dies - Nestabilities 'Labels #14', MFT 'Button Quartet' & Lil' Inker 'Stitched Mats: Rectangles'
Cardstock - Stampin' Up 'Island Indigo'
Ribbon - Stampin' Up 'Island Indigo'
Other - printed sentiment in Cotton Candy font, white thread & various buttons
