Fashionable Stamping Challenge..

Over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges  the current challenge is dressmaking, corsets etc. Again I really just had an urge to play (shouldn't really as I still have boxes to finish for today's workshop but hey ho all will get done in time) so here is my card...

It's an 8x8 kraft card and I have tried to achieve a patchwork to go with the sentiment I used:-  "A Family is a patchwork of Love".  All stamps used are from Creative Expressions vintage sewing plate - even my tape measure is a stamp.

My image is from Marianne Design and she has been embossed and then cracked to give an aged feel.  My scissors are also from Marianne Design.

I hope you are able to see the different machine stitching between the paper panels.  My paper rosettes have been made using an EK Sucess punch.

I am also entering this card into the:  Creative Craft Challenge - "Faux or Real Stitching"

Right back to the boxes!  Well maybe some toast and another cup of tea first!  Suzanne ~x~
