A canvas gift

I spent a very happy day making this 6x6 canvas as a gift for my niece Katy (hopefully she won't read my blog until after her birthday on Friday) I have painted the canvas with pink, mint green and white acrylic paint.  I then cut out a chipboard, Tim Holtz edging die and coloured it with Distress pens.  I wrapped some bakers twine around the bobbin.  The buttons are sewn onto some vintage thread cards which I printed out on my computer from a download which I think was from the Craft Stamper site.  I have used a small piece of paper from a Papermania pad with the sewing pattern image on and inked it with Tea Dye Distress ink.  I stamped the little sentiment onto a Craftwork cards ticket and added some sewing themed charms.  The edges of the canvas have been stamped with a Kanban ruler stamp.  Katy loves all things crafty so I am hoping she will love this handmade gift.

I would like to enter this into the Stitch in Time challenge at Anything But a Card with thanks to Rachel for suggesting it :)
