Needlework/Sewing Card

This card measures 12.5 x 12.5 cms.
Sewing Card
The idea for this card came to me while rutteling about in a bag of brass charms that had been given to me.
Needlework Card
I’ve used my X-cut 1in scalloped square punch and paper from a Papermania  Signature Blueberry Hill pad.
card for a sewer
I’ve gone a bit mad on the faux stitching in a light brown Marvy le Plume fine tipped pen, but I think it works with the theme of the card.

think you are onto a winner with the sewing theme - like Marc it takes me right back to watching my grandma and mum making clothes. I still love sewing but find I never have eough time these days - mainly cos I can blog hop for hours - lol!!

What a pretty card! I love the effect of the faux stitching on the scallops. I looks like it has actually been stitched.
