A Cute Card For A Change

I've had this card nearly finished for ages. Nearly - couldn't decide how best to finish it off. Well - it's done now.
The sewing machine came out for this. I felt it was needed given the subject of the image. A Stitch In Time from Rick St Dennis. Yes he does cute as well as elegant and "alternative".
Still a sentiment to go but I nearly always add them after I know who's going to get it. The DP is from my scrap box of unknown origin. Mounted onto brown then coffee card. The stitching in blue to tie all the colours together. Bits of blue ribbon and the buttons from my stash.
The image was coloured with promarkers and ink distressed before mounting onto pale blue card.

I would like to enter this into the challenge at
