In Stitches at Card Crafter's Circle!

Good Morning Everyone! I would love to share with you a card that I've created for the challenge over at Card Crafter's Circle.  It's all about stitching, machine or faux.  We'd love to see how you like to sew! I always loved seeing the sewing hoops and the delicate stitching done by hand so that was my inspiration for the shape of my card.  My card has also been made with this lovely birdhouse in mind.  It was a gift for a friend of mine and I made the card to compliment it.  Have a look. If the details are hard to see, just click on the pic and it'll pop up bigger for you.
I've used an incredible image by our sponsor Limited Runs called Morning Glory.  I love the blossoms on the bare branches and can just hear the sweet songs from the birds as they great each other in the morning light.  I've coloured the image with my prismas and added the faux stitching with a brown sharpie.  I added a beautiful silvery bow and the butterfly charm is tied on with some tiny blue ribbon. Here is a pic of the inside.
I've added a few layers that have been inked a bit with Tim Holtz sage distress ink that I've cut out with my Creative Memories circle cutters.  The sentiment is from Digi Design House which is no longer available.  I was so sad that they decided to close their doors.
Thank you so much for dropping by! I would love to see you out at Card Crafter's Circle! Limited Runs is offering 3 wonderful digis for the prize! Click on the badge below and check out their shop.
