C'est la Vie

I made this card using an old Friday Sketchers sketch challenge. I really like this sketch and have used it a few times. 
I dusted off my old "kenmore" sewing machine that was my mom's and did some stitching on this card. I used to do a lot of decor sewing about five years ago but put it away and forgot about it...
It was really easy sewing on the CS-I just have to practice a bit with the width and length of the stitches. 
I was also on the south end of Calgary yesterday delivering my idea books when I found a scrapbook store.....needless to say-it was a great day yesterday! :O) Anyways, I found these little charms and bookplate. I bought a few more different kinds-mostly snowflakes.  I just love them. 
I attached the bookplate with some CTMH liquid glass. 
I also picked up the flowers-but I can't remember what the brand is. 
Both stamp are MFT.
The ladies dresses are paper pieced.
I colored in the image with watercolor pencils.
Paper is CTMH Caprice
Colors are CTMH chocolate/crystal blue/honey
