Lace,pins and pearls

After spending a few days making masculine type cards I thought I'd have a change and do something feminine. Using an old stamp from a Non Sequiteur set and some lace,ribbons etc from my stash which is overflowing its storage and needs to be used instead of looked at. I don't know what made me think it was a good idea to sew on my card, I can sew a perfectly straight seam on material but give me a piece of card and its like a donkey's hind leg! This card is for Our Creative Corner - Shabby Chic so I'm saying the sewing is the shabby bit of it.
