My first sewn card!

Hello, to all of my talented and lovely blogger friends!
Today is Wednesday!
Time for a brand new challenge at
Our theme this week is
Buttons and Bows!
I'm very excited about sharing my card with you
because it's the very first card that I have sewn with my
sewing machine!
I made it a while ago for this particular challenge 
and I have actually 
posted some new stitched cards since I made this one.
However, this is my first sewn card.
This card is similar to a JOY FOLD
I used my fabulous
She is colored with copic markers and paper pieced.
This is a picture of the inside of the first flap.
This is the inside of the card when it is completely open.
In my mind when I was making it,
 (A long while ago) 
I was thinking that you could
 add pictures
to the inside of both sides for a nice keepsake.
Now when I look at it,
 I'm thinking it would have been 
nice if I added some pockets for gift cards, 
tags or pictures.
Fresh Brewed Designs, Coffee Take Me Away, rubber stamp
Stampin Up cardstock
The really gorgeous and yummy paper is 
DCWV French Country Stack
The pretty Die Cut is
Marianne Design Creatables Broderie Anglais Border
The leaves for my flowers were made with my
Cheery Lynn Designs Flourish
The buttons, twine and ribbon are all Stampin Up
The flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts

Now I hope that you pop on over to 
to see all of the wonderful inspiration 
that my very lovely and talented Design Team mates 
whipped up for you!
is our very special 
Valentine Blog Hop!
I can hardly wait to see the fabulous new 
Valentine Digi images that
Heather has created!
Heather assigns each of us on the Design Team
 a special new digi
to work with,
 so we don't get to see all of them 
until we actually participate in the Blog Hop!

Some Blog Candy for my followers
