Wishing You Sunshine

Today I have a card for you using an old favorite Our Craft Lounge set of mine, Sunshine Cheer.  I used some fun Sweet Summertime papers from Echo Park.  The sun was paper pieced on some polka dot patterned paper.  The flower was stamped and then colored with Copic markers. 

If you looked closely, you see that there is something very different for me on this card!  I actually REALLY sewed!  If you have been a long time visitor, you know that my favorite thing to do is faux sew on cards.  Well, I finally got a little craft sewing machine a while ago when I found one on sale.  I only JUST opened the box and decided to try it out.  As you can see, I'm terrible at sewing!  The stitching is all messy, but I thought it kind of looked neat anyway.  All I was trying for was a zig zag stitch around the focal piece but I kept having problems with the thread.  Hopefully you think the stitching looks kind of neat too!  :)  It definitely makes it unique because you couldn't get that stitching on purpose!  LOL  Oh well. . .maybe I should just stick to my faux sewing!  :)
