My first ever stitched card!

Hi all,well wanted to share this card with you as so pleased as i finally used my new mini sewing machine and after some trail runs on scrap card,managed to add sewing detail to my card :)
Have always liked this look on cards and having got the sewing machine at a fab price from poundstretchers a while ago thought i had better use it! So Mum you need to use your sewing machine too :)
Now if you do happen to look closely you will see its a bit but i intend to practice more.
Have also made this card for a certain docrafter who likes cats and for a challenge i am hosting over at Docrafts if you wish to join in.
I used my pennyblack squeaky clean stamp and coloured with promarkers,basic grey kioshii papers,sewed edges,used nesties to cut out image and layer,flowers were from stash and i punched out some leaves,used papermania gems and stamped a cuddly buddly greeting.
Off this morning to my craft group who are meeting at Stamp n Craft in yeovil if you want to join us for a fun day of crafting.
