This is the card I made for the homework and challenge:
The background stencil template is from Plaid. I applied the orange Distress Ink to create the background. Focal point is the sewing machine from the "Needle Little Love" set and colored with Copic markers. I also stamped the stitched heart from this set on the background circle and highlighted with stardust gelly roll pen. Finish this card by the "sending love" text from Simon Says Stamp's "Handwritten Sentiments" set. The little "X" stitches are also from "Needle Little Love" set. Here is a closer look of the card:
Notice that I spray the Shimmer Spritz onto the sewing machine and make a little bit sparkles? I also attached the white pearl stickers colored with matching colors of Copic markers.
I just realized this card can also attend this week's challenge of Addicted to CAS #5 - Heart. Here is the challenge photo:
