My first Challenge - SSnotime52

I love looking at Sharon Johnson's blog every morning and have been trying to get brave enough to attempt a challenge. I thought this Stamp Simply Challenge would be a good one to jump into for my first try. We are to Cuddle Up With Tammy (Tammy Hershberger ) to create a warm and cozy card. I got to bring my sewing machine forward on my table for this one. I hope this card will do.

All my paper is from Hobby Lobby. The ribbon was a spool in the $1 bin at Michaels. The cute little buttons are from Michael's too. They came in a package in the most gorgeous muted colors! I attached the ribbon, stitched a wavy straight stitch all the way around the card and over the ribbon, then attached the buttons. The teacup is by Inkadinkado, stamped in Burnt Copper Colorbox, then cut out with an oval Nestie and then a scalloped one. While the oval was still in the die, I attempted to create somewhat of a vignette effect with the Ruby Satin and Gold Brocade.

Stamps: Inkadinkado Vintage Teacup.
Paper: Paper Studio CS, My Minds Eye DP.
Ink: Colorbox Burnt Copper, Ruby Satin, Gold Brocade.
Accessories: Nestabilities, ribbon, buttons, sewing machine.

Your sewing is really great! I just don't have that much luck sewing on cards. I really like how you sponged on the ruby ink on the tea cup image!
