Echo Park Life Is Beautiful

This card , like the one in my last post , uses digi image by echo park printed then cut on my silhouette portrait. Someone said it's a different style for me, it is  and one I've always admired but never seemed to have mastered, it's definitely easier with the right tools!
I'm pleased with my machine stitching today , no slipped stitches, it must like this card and paper thickness. I do love stitching on cards but I don't have a 100% success rate.
I've added some cute flower buttons from do craft and added matt an layering with the help of my perfect layers ruler.

challenges entered :

everybody art : followed the sketch above.
love to create : button it up
one stitch at a time : use a digi

It's cold and dull here today , the nights are pulling out now , bit by bit , roll on Spring , sick of Winter, would be nice to get in the garden ....never mind more time to craft .
enjoy your day. janex

Jane, this card is gorgeous .... I love the sentiment for it's truth and you have made it the focal point of a card full of so many beautiful extras ....beautiful fold, beautiful colours and papers and the flowers and butterflies are so Spring like and so uplifting to enjoy on a grey winter's day. Your machine stitching is such a lovely finishing touch .... personally I love to see stitching on a card because, although subtle it always adds that something special to the final card.

Thank you for sharing this lovely card in our challenge this week. Ingrid xx ( OSAAT Team )
