Dressmaking


I just couldn't resist these fabulous new retro papers called happy Days from Papermania nd this one is just perfect for a sewing themed card. I found this digi on my computer and it is labelled as an LSS image. I have no idea who that is but it is lovely. I tucked a piece of lace underneath one corner and I've used the TH distress tool and lots of DI Vintage Photo. The tape measure was cut from a piece of 12 x 12 MME kraft card and I've used my sewing on the edge die from Tim Holtz and some vintage baker's twine.
