La Belle Vie Birthday Card with sewing and Mojo Monday

Wow, summer is just flying by!! I can't believe we are already well into August.  I feel like I haven't been able to enjoy my summer yet, I haven't been able to de-stress enough yet I think!  Tonight I took a break and just played with paper for a little bit, I needed a birthday card for a friend and thought that something from the La Belle Vie would work great.  I used the Mojo Monday sketch for the inspiration for this card.

Unfortunately, it's late here, so no natural light, which makes this card look a little washed out. This next detail picture was able to capture the colours better.

I don't usually "do" pink but the pink in this kit is a soft pink and I actually like it.

I got out my sewing machine and stitched around the edges of all the pieces of this card...doing that circle was not fun!  A quick tip, when you are done, pull the thread from the front through to the back by pulling on the end thread in the back, then use a small piece of tape to tape down the threads on the back on the paper, that way you won't have any stitches coming undone on you.

Thanks for looking, hope you like the card!
