Let's Ink it Up Challenge 13!!!

OK, first of all let me apologize for posting my card so late. I live in Clayton, NC near Raleigh and today we had some really severe thunderstorms with hail and tornados, so needless to say we were without power for awhile.
They said there was a report of 63 sited tornados today in NC! WOW I thank the lord that one didn't hit us!!! 
So lets get on with the new challenge 13 at Let's Ink it Up!!!
  this time we have a fantastic prize up for grabs from our generous sponsor Cindy at:

'Show us your Stitching'
It could be any type of stiching on your project, real or faux as long as you remember to
use a rubber or clear stamp - no digi stamps please

Now there is always a first for the first time! (hope that made some sense) Well the card I made has 2 first going for it!!
I have never sewn with a sewing machine. (even though my mother was a seamstress and both of my sisters  sew too, But both don't live close anought to show me!! So think the lord for YOU TUBE) But I did buy a Brother this Christmas, because I saw so many wonderful cards with sewing stitches and I fell in love with the look.  I do have to confess that I was so afraid to try this technique, other then being real busy with work, I kept putting off making this card till the last minute.
The second first is this is the first time I ever used Penny Black stamps and I really love them!
Well here it is!!!
