My Craft Spot Inspiration - Keep Clam Craft On

Hello Everyone!
Thank You for joining me today for some My Craft Spot Inpsiration.
Today I'd like to share with you a card I made with last week's Monday Challenge #105 "Sew Fun" in mind. However, I made a slight error and didn't read the Challenge Rules correctly. We had to use Machine or Hand Stitching and I went for some Faux Stitching instead - oops.

Keeping with the "Sew Fun" theme, I used the Thread Spool Shaped Card SVG File by Lori Whitlock. Yep, you read right, I used an SVG FILE!! Gasp! This is my first SVG File creation and let me tell you its addicting! But have NO fear I won't be leaving my Cricut creations, you'll be seeing some soon.
The Thread Spool Shaped Card was first cut from Bazzill Kraft Cardstock as a base. I cut a second card using a woodgrain patterned paper from Pebbles Inc. Then I wrapped around some lace and "Sea Sprite" Yarn I found at Walmart on clearance.
Some of My Craft Spot's "Vanilla Bean" Crinkle Ribbon was tied around the card and into a bow. I was all out of Pink Jute String - available at My Craft Spot - so I took some of the Ivory Jute String and dyed it with my Heidi Swapp Color Shine Mist to get a nice rosy color.
 The "Keep Calm and Craft On" Sentiment is from the My Craft Spot "Tiny Tags 3" Stamp Set. In addition to the previous challenge theme, this sentiment is actual inspiration for this Thread Spool Shaped Card - I just love it.
I added to two small butterflies from the My Craft Spot "Small Alphabet" Metal Dies stamped with the "Chevron" Pattern using the My Craft Spot "Pattern Block" Stamp Set.
And lastly, to the inside I stamped the "Sending You Happy Little Thoughts" Sentiments from the My Craft Spot "Butterfly Kisses" Stamp Set. The tiny Butterfly in the lower bottom corner is also from the My Craft Spot "Butterfly Kisses" Stamp Set, I pen stitched the path.
I hope I have inspired you with my Thread Spool Shaped Card today.
And don't forget to join in on this week's My Craft Spot's Monday Challenge #106 - GIFT CARD HOLDERS. You have until Monday, August 5th 11:59pm MST for your chance to win this week's prize. BUT unnlike me, be sure to read the Challenge Rules first!! LOL!
