Penny Black card

Hi, I just got my first ever sewing maching from Lidls for £39.99, what a bargain!!! Anyway had to have a go at stitching for real on a card, so here's my first attempt, it's a bit wonky, but not bad for a first attempt! I haven't used one since my Nan's when I was about 14!!! That's a long time ago now! Hope you like........

Lovely Justine, I never thought of using PI little stamps in the centre of flowers, must get all mine out! Bargain sewing machine, I bought mine from Hobbycraft months ago and have never used it!!!
