This is for the inspiration challenge and I added the photo we were to be inspired by in the photo. I took my inspiration by color, tassels, stitching, what I saw as eyelets or brads and the two loopy designs on the bottom reminded me of paisley. The card reminds me of clothing from the civil war era.
I used the sewing machine for stitching. My shoulder now remembers why I hate eyelets.
The card looks like it’s missing something but I have no idea what, so any suggestions are welcome!

Yeah you win but what's one little eyelet?? At least I don't have a sore shouler. I like the tassel, that is one of the things I thought of adding, but the only cord I had was white and made the card look dirty--Muy bueno! on the inspiration, amiga.
