First plaque of the year


Our first challenge of 2016 at Crafty Ribbons is anything but a card. My sewing plaques are so popular that I decided to make another for my stall. I used LOTV Dress Shoppe papers along with 2 ribbons and lace from Crafty Ribbons. I added various wooden sewing embellishments which I bought from Stamposaurus at the NEC. The sewing machine has been coloured with black soot distress ink and I wrapped cord around one of the spools, I added buttons and bows to finish it off.


Challenges
Not just cards anything goes 
Bizzy Becs anything goes 
Noor! Design UK anything goes 
ABC Y for your choice

Brilliant!! Love the design and the paper and embellies are perfect. Not surprised they sell well. I have my first craft fair up here on the 1st March! I don't have a craft room yet!! I've stripped the walls and painted the room but now have to wait for carpet and work space to be done. Hugs, Carol S.xx
