A Babushka Birthday Card for Sarah

I just finished making a birthday card for my friends' daughter Sarah.

I bought a few things russian doll / babushka related for her birthday so I decided to make her a personalised card.
The card is made from such items as Babushka fabric, grosgrain ribbon, scrapbooking coloured paper, a pink paper flower, glued on blue sequin beads then finally sewn to recycled brown card.
I'm quite pleased with it considering it's a first attempt to sew on card! I have also cut out letters from  a vintage children's book to spell her name - Sarah   :)
When she is finished using it as a card, Sarah's mum can cut the back off (where I'll place the writing) and it can be placed in a scrap book as a keepsake.
