Sewing birthday wishes

Happy Sunday,
Hope you are all having a lovely day, whatever you may be doing. The weekend is almost over, and getting ready for a new week. My Sunday was a little bit upside down. Was woken at 3.30 this morning by the security company telling us they detect now power from our alarm system........they were so right, we had no power and not for the next 12 hours. Of course I then battled to get back to sleep......anyway, there are lots of things that one cannot do without power.... but I was able to do a bit of tidying in my craft room and worked on samples for my class next week.

The card I have today was also made during a craft session 2 weeks ago. It is a centre step card, as the ladies requested this to be made. Here's what I used:
Paper:  The name on theDP  pack is Victoria & Albert Museum, London, and all the edges were inked with Vintage photo
The doily is a Nellie Snellen MF die., stamped with a sentiment from Country Crafts and rubber stamps.
The sewing machine, cotton reels and buttons are all cut from Bazzill card with Joy cutting dies. I wound some thin ribbon thread round the cotton reels. Finished off with lace and beads.
I am entering this in the following challenges:

Paper Play....Punches and Dies.
Cute card Thursday....Anything goes

Wishing you all a very exciting week. take care and have fun.

This is quite a remarkable card. Love the detail on this one. The colors you've chosen are soft and sweet. Love this! Sorry about the power outage though. . .I go nuts when we have a power outage. Makes you wonder what they did before electricity doesn't it? Hope you are well. Best, Curt
