'You're SEW Special...'

Well, I am on a roll with the Tsunami Rose Designs printable papers! I am totally out of my comfort zone.... scrap that - i am changing my comfort zone!!! I got a pile of lace ribbons in the post today and i will be ordering more tomorrow when i've got a few more pennies in the bank! I'm also loving the little flowers i've been using recently - I bought loads of these about 10 years ago when I started card making and haven't used them on anything since then - there are times when I'm glad I hoard!

I also found this fabulous set that my sister-in-law-to-be gave me for Christmas 2011... It had sat on my bookshelf feeling unloved but when i found it today I just know I'll be using the elements soon!! There are fabulous flowers and tags and twine and glassine envelopes and bling!!!

Well, the paper i'm using today is the Tsunami Rose Designs 'Vintage Clothes Pin' in Sepia which you can find in her online shop here! As soon as I saw it, it reminded me of clothes and ribbon and I dug out a kraft dress form, dressed her in lace and added a flower. The card blank is a Craftwork Cards Bobbin card - these are on clearance just now on their website!

I stamped some needles and thread on the background with my Tuxedo Black Memento ink pad and also stamped bobbins and a measuring tape on kraft card which i cut out. The purple colour is a Pro-Marker in Maroon and the measuring tape and dress form have some Dusty Concord Distress Ink on them too.

I wrapped some gold stretchy cord around the bobbins and to make a 'waist' on the dress form and attached everything with 3D foam. A length of my new purple lace was attached along the bottom of the card with Cosmic Shimmer acrylic glue.

Hope you like!!
I'll be back at the weekend with my sons 3rd birthday card! He picked the robot for it!
