Get Sketchy GS #36

Hello again! Two posts in one evening is very unusual, but I do have a second Mother's Day card that I will be sharing here. This one will be submitted for Get Sketchy's card challenge. This card is titled "Mother's Day," and I used layering, buttons and faux-stiching to create it.

Speaking of stitching, last week I purchased my very first miniature sewing machine so that I can add real stitching to my cards. I have desperately wanted to add stitching to my cards for the longest time, but I don't sew, nor do I have a machine. However, I decided to bite the bullet and take the plunge. So, one night last week while my husband was away on business I researched miniature sewing machines and the Jenome model had terrific reviews. But, even better--I found an online tutorial that shows me how to thread it, and sew cardstock with my exact machine!! I am sooooo excited.

Additional excitement occurred today when my long awaited Papertrey Ink stamps came. I have been drooling over these stamps from the minute I saw them in Paper Crafts and Stamp it! Cards magazine. Today I received Mod Squad, Guide Lines, Shapes by Design and Mixed Messages!! I already began using Mod Squad the minute I came home from work!! The stamps soak the Ink up perfectly, and I LOVE LOVE LOVE clear stamps!! I am sooooo stoked to play with these sets,a and showcase all the possibilities here!

And, now for the supplies for this card:
