A Friend Sew Sweet

Just a wee bit late on my  Retro Cafe Art  Design Team piece this week. With the computer and internet issues, I just had to go with the flow and post today Friday instead of Tuesday. I was thinking of a dear friend that I miss when I made this sweet card. She is sew sweet! I used the Vintage Stripe Sewing Collage sheet from Retro Cafe Art for the darling mannequin and scissor image.Thought I'd try a new color combination of copper and purple, I think it works. Do you know that that is no color that I dislike? so every  crazy combination makes sense to me. LOL.

I started with the Retro image and used a copper Sharpie marker to add some copper color. The background is a grey paper that I stamped with a copper ink with a flourish stamp then used copper paint to add dimension. Purple textured chip board corners with brads are another layer. Copper rope buttons, tiny dot stickers and copper swirl stickers came next. Some measuring tape paper edged the card with copper ink details.A sprinkle of rhinestones for sparkle and I was done with this card.

Hope you will think of someone sew sweet this week.
take care, gerri
