Sunshiney Day

Well, I decided it was time to make nice with my sewing machine.  We have an on/off relationship.  We've been off for a while, but I decided it was time to see if it was ready to come out and play.  It took a bit of coaxing but I was able to get it to play nice with me.  The inside and outside of the card have been sewn.  I wasn't sure about these papers when I got them, but I absolutely LOVE them.  Now I have to figure out where I got them so I can get more.  The stamp is one that I won in December for Magnolia's Advent Calendar.  Actually I got a few stamps from that win, so you'll be seeing quite a few Magnolia cards from me.  I tried a different type of bow.  I followed the tutorial here.  I think it would look better is I had wider ribbon, but I really wanted to use this ribbon.  Anyway, here's Tilda....
