Reading, Sewing & Sudoku Card!

This is the first of two unusual orders for cards I made yesterday.  The recipient is into reading, sewing and sudoku.  Hopefully it fits the criteria!

Sudoku, reading, & sewing!

Pearlised card stock as base card.  I then googled some free images, for the button background, and the little toppers (found a fab site, but not sure that I bookmarked it - duh!).  This was mounted on a beige pearlised papermania cardstock and edged with a rick-rack effect peel-off.  The tape measure was actually part of the button image, and I cropped that, printed it separately, and added it as a ribbon.  I also found some downloadable free sudoku grids, and with a careful bit of placement using Publisher, I managed to put the recipients name in the middle of the grid (glad it was only 5 letters long).   I also highlighted some of the numbers to depict her year of birth.  The sentiments were also computer generated, and mounted onto same beige cardstock, as were the little images.

Unfortunately I don't have any of Joanna Sheen's Haberdashery stamps, but I had some peel-offs relating to craft - so I used one of the scissors peel-offs and mounted a pencil one on some card.

Thanks for looking.

Hi Mags I would say this fit the criteria perfectly, and it looks totally great, the person who receives this will love it.
