Love is like Butterflies

Happy Wednesday!
So I tried something new with my cards this week.  A few things that I've never done/hardly do.  And I must say, I really love how it all looks!

Today's card was supposed to just be my practice card, but it turned out so cute that I finished it all up and decided to share it :)
First off...this is my first time ever sewing on a card!  Yeah, I need some practice...those lines are not very straight...but over all it's so darn cute!  Plus I hardly ever do single layer cards.  So when this idea popped into my head, and it actually looked good once completed, I got super excited :)

I used kind of a jumble of images on here.  The sweet butterfly is from 2 Cute Ink.  I just love these sweet little images!

The flower border is from Doodle Pantry.  It's a part of the Spring Song Birdies collection, but worked so perfect as a border for this card.

And finally the sentiment is from Create with TLC.

I pretty much left off all embellishments except for the twine and bow at the top and a few small liquid pearl dots under the sentiment to pull a little shimmer into the card.  The background has been lightly chalked and I did my best to "ground" the flowers with some added grass and dirt.

So tell me, do you sew on your cards?  Any tips for a beginner like me? :)
