Sew Pretty Mother's Day Card

Hi!  This is my first post of new material since I moved my blog, and I am excited to kind of be back participating on challenges!  Today I'm posting for My Craft Spot's Monday Challenge, Make It Pop!  I have been working on some cards for Mother's Day so this week you may see a few of those!  For this challenge we had to use dimensional foams to make a part of the card pop.  I just love how the card takes on new life when dimension is added!  Here's my card:

I like sewing but it took me a while to find a setting on my machine where I actually liked the stitching. I still have to practice a bit more more I think I've come a long way from my first stitches!  

Below is a view of the card laying flat so you can see the oval 'pop out'!

Base: Gina K Designs (GKD) Pure Luxury card stock
