Sewing Birthday Card

I created this card for my Mom who is a wonderful quilter, sewer and knitter.
I bought this stamp set from Close to My Heart specifically to make things for her. 
Every Christmas I get beautiful handmade gifts from her and she didn't disappoint this year!  A lovely fall quilted table runner, a very cool knitted scarf and more of my favorite dishcloths and scrubbies!  Plus I also got one of her paper embroidered cards.  Perfect as I don't do any of those crafts!!
How do you like the faux buttons?  I can make a button to match any paper project using this cool punch from Marvy... 
If you punched multiples, layered them and then added Glossy Accents, I think it would be hard to tell they were made out of paper!
I've entered this card into the following Challenges:

I still have my Grandma's treadle machine - it is a great machine, too!
Your card has a nice feel to it - comfy, homey, warm.
Thanks for playing H2H.
