Sew it's your Birthday!

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

I hope you all had a fabulous day yesterday, I managed to get quite a bit of crafting done before relaxing in front of the telly with hubby and watching a film. Today we are off to see my Granddaughters so I hope you all have a lovely day.

Today's card is made using Chocolate Baroque Sewing stamps.


1. 5 x 5 white square card which I have matted and layered purple pearlescent card all corners have been punched with inverted corner punch.
2. On white supersmooth card I stamped the pin cushion, thimbles and scissors with Versamark and embossed then using Distress ink Shaded Lilac over the images which made them "pop".
3. I stamped the dress form and sewing machine with gilding glue and added silver gilding flakes, fussy cut out and adhered to the card with Pinflair.
4. I added the Tim Holtz tape measure, and 3 buttons.
5. To finish off I added the sentiment.

Thank you for visiting Today
Hugs xxxxx

This would be a perfect card for my SIL. She loves to sew but doesn't own a machine. Can you believe she comes to my house and uses mine. I admit I love it since it gives us time to chat and share family stories as well as exchange pattern ideas. :-D
