You're Sew Special

Most of my cards include a Copic colored image but I don't want that to be the only kind of card I make. I am an avid sew and when I saw the Sizzix sewing machine die at 40% off, I just had to have it.

The card base is Kraft cardstock. The background papers are from My Minds Eye "Lost and Found." I added Baker's Twine, burlap, lace, a button and pins to keep with the sewing theme.What would a sewing themed card be without some sewing machine stitching? Foam dots were added to add dimension and the Diva in me would not let me create a card without bling. The bling is from Forever In Time. Finally I added a sentiment from one of Docerela's recent releases "Life's A Stitch." I have a few sewing friends that I plan to make cards for. I know they will appreciate receiving sewing themed cards.
