Stitched, stenciled and stamped

Hey everyone, I am up with a simple card, some of you might have seen the peeks of this one at Instagram, if not join me @rahmat.ccc
I wanted to sew something, and I came up with this design, thinking and drawing this simple design took more than hour. But sitting down to make the card was super quick.
I stated with the freehand drawing, and then pierced holes for sewing. I used a blue shaded thread here along with blue beads. I used Lazy Dazy Stitch here, those who know embroidery will be very familiar with the name. I used green for the stem, used back stitches here.
After the sewing part was done, I used ARTplorations Bubble stencil, and used twisted citron DI to ink.
I added a blue glitter strip, the sentiment is from HLS, the small words. The other one is from Uniko, embossed in silver EP. A few jewels to finish off. Can I say that I am in love with this card? I love the colors, and of course stitching being a weakness, has to love it!
