Easel Card with Sewing Technique

Yesterday I took the time to make yet another card. I've been meaning to make a card for a long time now where I actually sew on the card. Most times I tend to forget until its too late but for once I managed to not forget. I just love the affect that the sewing has on cards and I have to say it really worked for this one too. Green is one of my favorite colors and plus I had some huge green roses that I bought a while ago that I've been meaning to use on a card. However they were much too large for this 4.75 x 4.25 inch card so I tore off 3 of the layers of petals underneath to make it the size that I want. I don't think its too noticeable but I have to say that those roses do not compare to the beautiful Mulberry roses that most crafters use.
The image was outlined with copics and colored in with pencil crayons. I'm wondering if I should take the time to color the surface that Tilda is resting her hands on? Is it a table or should I just leave it the way it is? I left the inside plain but I like how it looks. There is such a thing as too crowded in my opinion.
Anyway, enough chatter...Here is my card.
