Thankful for You Card

Howdy.  The holiday crafting continues.  But, I took a break from Christmas trees, and wrapped presents, and made a card for a customer {smile}.  I knew that I wanted to use some of my 'Sewing' themed pattern paper, and a mini post card.  I just needed a little direction.  So, I headed over to Mojo Monday to take a look at their current sketch, and yeah, I made it work {smile}.

and here is what I made:

Before I get to the recipe of my card, I just have to say, that I am still trying to hang of this new and improved photo editing program.  Today's edit went a lot smoother.  But, I don't feel like I am truly proficient at it, yet.  {smile}
Recipe:  I started with Blush Blossom card stock, by Stampin' Up!.  This solid card stock has been retired for almost a decade.  So, I hoard it like gold!  It's a soft, and creamy pale pink color.  Not quite pink, and not quite peach.  And I love the heavy weight of it!
The yard stick,  the pink polka dots, and the scissor pattern papers are from Carta Bella, their Sew Lovely collection.  The yard stick pattern paper is 4" x 5 1/4".  I sponged the edges with crumb cake classic ink.  The pink polka dot and scissor pattern papers are 3 1/2" x 2 1/2".  I adhered them together with a small overlap, so that their finished size is 3 1/2" x 4 3/4".  I added a double border with my sewing machine.  (I just love this look.)
I layered a scrap piece of cream embroidered trim and a mauve pink scallop trim, at the top of the card.  I secured these two trims to the card front with my sewing machine, too.  I tied a small piece of pink sequin trim to a white button with gold bakers twine.  I adhered the button to the card front with my hot glue gun.
I cut my mini post card down, and sponged the edges with crumb cake classic ink.  I hand-stamped my sentiment directly on the mini post card.  I used baked brown sugar classic ink.  I wanted my sentiment to look faded and vintage.  I adhered it to the card front with foam tape.  And viola!
I am pretty happy with how my card came out.  Thank you for visiting!  And I hope you have been inspired to play along with this super talented group over @ Mojo Monday.   {smile}
