Father's day

I made this card for my Dad, inspired by Stamp TV's video of this week (Gina was making background paper using paper scraps and her sewing machine). I didn't use scraps but beautiful japanese paper that I cut in various width instead. I created a medallion out of balsa wood (cut and embossed with a Nestability). That inspiration came from Dawn who recently die-cut balsa with her PTI dies on her blog "my favorite things". :-D I then stamped the wood with a text background and my sentiment (both PTI).
I really love this card, the different texture of the wood is really interesting in real life. :-D

Oh, that's a neat card. I've never seen balsa wood - now, I've gotta get some! LOL! I love how you stamped the background and the font on that medallion. And, of course, I love the sewing on the card... :)
