I sewed....I can't believe it...

I can't believe I sewed on my first card... And no this is not the only reason I got the sewing machine but it is a perk...


What do think of my little hippos...
I've had these guys for a while from Rubbernecker. And I thought today they would fit this card perfectly. I colored them with copics of course and used my nestablitlies dies to cut them out and frame them. I knew the sentiment was perfect for this card and it is one of the Salebration sets you can earn for free this month and part of next month.

I grabbed my glittered flowers that May had sent me from fiskars and added them along with a cloud9 chipboard sticker and of course I sewed the two pieces of Berry Bliss papers together and onto the cardbase... well I'm off to clean and then maybe break my cricut out to figure it out... Anyone got any pointers on using it.... have a great afternoon.

Supplies:
Stamps: Hippo Hearts, lots of thoughts SAB, pretty petals
Ink: adirondack slate, purely pomegrante
Cardstocks: papertrey stampers select white, very vanilla, purely pomegrante, berry bliss
Accessories: sewing machine, glittered flowers, cloud9 chipboard stickers, nestablitities, copic markers

Cute card...I'm thinking about getting a smaller sewing machine to do this! I can't seem to find the energy to drag out the big one!
