SSS Monday Challenge

The Monday challenge at Simon Says Stamp is to "Create Some Magic".

I have a book I've read to my grandchildren at least 100 times called, "The Magic Sewing Machine".
It's a charming story about 2 orphan children who are left a sewing machine that turns out to be magic.
With it, they take over and banish the wicked orphanage headmaster, find her gold coins, and 
save all the orphan children. Lovely colors and illustrations.
My card celebrates the children's book.

Tim Holtz' Sewing Blueprint, gold silver and copper embossed on PTI's card stock.
I fussy cut the machine and popped it up over a stamped image.
Background is a stencil of PTI's Cover Plate: Cross Quilt that was ink sponged in
Harvest Gold, Orange Zest, Terracotta Tile, New Leaf and Blueberry. (PTI).
The button was solid green, I embossed the center in gold  to look like the gold coins in the story.

You can find the the SSS Challenge here, but you better hurry, ends on Sunday!
