Sew A Little Happiness

I've made a little card for a very special person who needs a little cheer so I thought I would share it with you tonight before I have to make a birthday card for an order.  Now it fits in with this weeks Less Is More Challenge of using your nations flag as the Scotland flag ( My BF Alistair is Scottish after all... Hope this is OK Lady & Diva LIM lol). Here it is...



I used a Magic Dots prick tool to punch holes around the end and then hand sewed it all ( hmmm I really need to get a proper sewing machine).  I added the sentiment into the stitching too...

Inspiration:
Less Is More: #27 Colours of Nation Flag
Cupcake Craft Challenge: #154 Sew Mad
Cute Card Thursday: #177 Clean & Simple


Card Recipe:
Sentiment: Pink Petticoat
Button: The Ribbon Girl
Cotton & card from stash

Hope you are having a good evening... esp since there is only 1 more sleep until weekend...
