Sew Lovely Now and Forever and that is the truth

Haven't been doing any challenges lately. so when I saw the Fashionable Stamper Challenge #10 with dressmaking,corsets and accessories I knew I had just the right stamp. I've used this stamp before and just adore it. There is also a Craft Your Day Away #34 Buttons and Bows challenge, so thought I would enter that too! It's a pretty simple card but I thought we needed a rest from Christmas cards.  I'm almost done making of mine, thank goodness!

So first, the dressmakers dummy was stamped on a patterned beige and white paper. I added some gingham and white embossed paper trim. Some vintage tickets, labels and a sew lovely tag came next. I outlined everything in red and edged the card in black for some more detail. A sprinkle of small red buttons and  tiny hearts and I had this card all stitched up!

Hope you see something so lovely this week.
artfully yours, gerri
