Stitched in Summer Sarah Kay

My first stitched card! I hope you like it! 
For this project I used Tim Holtz paper, My Minds Eye paper, Sarah Kay image stamped in memento and coloured with promarkers, silver sewing thread, pearls, vintage buttons, and a gingham bow.
I love my new sewing tool and Tim Holtz paper so couldnt wait to use them! I hand stitched the middle panel with silver sewing thread and then added the stamped image in the middle. I used MME papers for the backing papers on the card and placed the stitched panel of paper and image at an angle on the card. I then added the pearls, and glued a pearl onto my gingham bow. I then added some gorgeous vintage buttons from the tin my lovely nan gave me at the weekend.
