Thanks Sew Much 58

Mona Pendleton | Friday, February 11, 2011 @ 10:46 AM | , , ,

Hi there! T.G.I.F. :) Are you ready for the weekend? I am! Temps are supposed to be back up into the 70's so I am looking forward to riding my bike and not being all bundled up. I hate when my toes get cold in the clip shoes and it seems no matter what gear I wear, the cold air seems to find it's way in :(

Today, I am Guest Designing at My Craft Spot where Kimberly sells Vintage hand dyed ribbon and baker's twine. If you are in need of either of these, I highly recommend visiting her site! I made this card using some stamps that I have had for probably at least 8 months or so and embarrassingly enough, have only kissed the ink pad once! YIKES
ALL of the images seen here are from the Crafty Secrets Sew Special stamp set and paired with Melissa Frances DP that is oh sew pretty :) I love that Vintage elegant dress form image. What inspired me to create this card was the graphic for this week's color challenge over at The Play Date Cafe.
I used a variety of inspired images from Sew Special to create the black and cream patterned paper that is directly below the dress form. The little tag was made using a S4-246 Labels Eleven die template and the pretty seam binding bow was made using Vanilla Bean Vintage crinkly ribbon Courtesy of Kimberly @ My Craft Spot.
Thanks sew much for looking~hope you have a great day! Be Sweet :)

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Crafty Secrets Sew Special
Die Templates & Machine: Spellbinders™ Nestabilities® S5-022 Labels Ten, S5-023 Mega Ovals Large, S5-024 Mega Classic Scalloped Ovals LG, GC-001 Grand Calibur
Patterned Paper: Melissa Frances 
Ribbon: Vanilla Bean Vintage crinkly ribbon Courtesy of Kimberly @ My Craft Spot.
