Sewing With Buttons and Bows

Here is a card I made using the NIFTY FIFTIES cartridge.  I just love the sewing machine on that cartridge.

I recently got some new stamps with a sewing theme that I have been eager to use.  The stamps are from Clear Art Stamps.  This set is of stamps is just adorable, and I look forward to using all of them.

The two little buttons on the card are from my grandmother's button tin.  She kept all her buttons in a big round tin container.  I think assorted cookies may have been packaged in the tin.   The two little pearl cluster stickers I purchased at Hobby Lobby.  I feel the need to buy some more.  I also threaded the sewing machine with DMC embroidery thread.  

The butterfly, corner punch, and patterned paper are from K&Company.  The base paper and sewing machine are made with Recollections paper.  And the gold paper on the sewing machine is from AC Specialties.  The sheer rose pink ribbon is from Hobby Lobby.
